4-6-4 Blue Goose Hudson Steam Engine w/Proto-Sound 3.0 (Scale Wheels)
The Santa Fe's only true streamlined engine, No. 3460, the famed Blue Goose, spent most of its life on the 992-mile run between Chicago and La Junta, CO. The sleek blue and silver shrouding originally draped over some of the cylinders and valve gear, but that was later trimmed away to allow for easier maintenance access. Whatever the shape of the Blue Goose's shrouding, the Santa Fe made sure its appearance was always resplendent. No. 3460 was always released from the roundhouse with a high gloss, including highly polished running gear. Shop workers were forbidden to use chains-only rope-to secure driving or side rods on this beauty when they pulled it into the back shops for work, for fear that chains would mar the metal.
The Blue Goose, sometimes called the Blue Bird, is a proud member of the M.T.H. Premier line. This distinctively cowled blue steamliner is sure to catch the attention to everyone who takes a trip on your railroad.
