American Locomotive Company's PA's are regarded as the most beautiful passenger locomotives ever made. Built from1946 to 1953, they were powered with the highest-rated powerplant at the time - 2,000 hp. Sometimes they were called "jets" because of their distinctive GE turbine whining sound.

For years we wanted to make an accurate model with proper nose contours, roof radius and details. Other manufacturers missed many important details in creating this model. We spared no expense and took extra pains to provide modelers with a great model.

Each Alco PA-1 A-B-A set features:

  • All twelve wheels powered in the "A" units
  • Heavy diecast frame
  • Headlights with all windows and porthole window real glass
  • Dual motors and three flywheels in each "A" unit
  • Electronic three-position reverse setin both "A" units
  • Operating couplers and fully compatible with "American Flyer" trains
  • Real Sound™ in the "B" units, (with two speakers) even reproduces the GE turbine "whine" at higher speeds

A-B-A units are shipped completely assembled, tested and ready to run.
