From the Manufacturer
The 4-8-4 wheel configuration was used on virtually every main line in North America for passenger and fast freight service. With drivers up to 80" and a four wheel trailing truck supporting a larger firebox for maximum steam levels the 4-8-4 Northern possessed superior riding and tracking capabilities. The first 4-8-4 was built by the American Locomotive Company in 1927 for the Northern Pacific Railroad and was referred to as a “Northern Pacific” which in time was shortened to “Northern”. Bachmann’s model represents a Santa Fe 3776 class locomotive built in 1941.
