One of the most acclaimed locomotives of all time, the Union Pacific’s Challengers excelled in both passenger and freight service. Union Pacific continued to refine and improve their 4-6-6-4s even after the final orders were delivered during WWII. Now you can own an unparalleled model of these amazing locomotives.

The Vision Line Challenger returns in new road names, road numbers and now for the first time with Bluetooth control. Each locomotive represents a prototypically
unique version of these classic machines along with a pair of colorful “what if” versions. Widely regarded as one of the best locomotives ever produced by
