LionMaster Challengers: The power and excitement of these great locomotives comes with all the features of our scale LEGACY models but in a size runs on O31 curves!
Among the most successful of the big articulated steam designs, Challengers could be found on railroads all across the United States hauling everything from coal to passengers. Well-regarded for their power, speed, and efficiency, there were few challenges these mighty locomotives couldn't overcome.
Small enough to go almost anywhere but big enough to look the part, the LionMaster line gives you the best of both worlds.
