LEGACY® RailSounds® sound system featuring:
Officially called the "Consolidation Line," everyone knew them simply as C-Liners. The concept was solid - a customizable locomotive that could be tailored to each railroad's needs. Options included three horsepower ratings, dynamic brakes, steam generators, even 6-wheel rear trucks for lighter track. Consequently, these were found in both freight and passenger service. Perhaps due mostly to the unique nature of Fairbanks Morse's opposed-piston design, order numbers were relatively low across all of the variations. Nevertheless, the C-Liners found their way onto many different railroads and were often mixed with other road power. Some were later re-engined. New to the Lionel line, these locomotives are equipped with Lionel's LEGACY control, Bluetooth, and LEGACY RailSounds! All of the models chosen for this first release utilize the very unique 4 and 6-wheel truck combination. Sold individually, you can create a matched pair, or mix and match with other locomotives in your fleet.
