One of the Norfolk and Western's famous super-steam trinity, the Class A was in a class of its own when it came to freight service. Equally capable of pulling heavy tonnage and moving freight swiftly at up to 70 mph on the mainline, the A's were among the finest of Roanoke's designs and construction.

All of the prototype's power and performance is packaged in a locomotive just the right size for a layout with tighter curves in the new LionMaster Class A. Returning to the line for the first time with Whistle Steam, the LionMaster A has all the LEGACY features and fun of a large steam locomotive - but will run smoothly on O31 curves. Available in two N&W numbers including the famous 1218 and two fun "what-if" versions for the Santa Fe and B&O.
