Description

The ATSF 3460 class consisted of six
 

The ATSF 3460 class consisted of six "Super Hudson" 4-6-4 steam locomotives built by Baldwin in 1937.   One of those, #3460, was the Santa Fe's only streamlined locomotive.  It was painted in a unique light blue and silver paint scheme and gained the name "Blue Goose".   The Blue Goose was delivered to Shopton, Iowa in January 1938, and it pulled many of the Santa Fe's famed passenger trains until it was retired and scrapped in 1956.  

We are proud to offer two models of the early locomotive as it appeared in 1938 and four models of the locomotive as it appeared between 1939 and retirement.  The only difference between the two 1938 models is the presence of the road number "3460" on the side of the tender.  Each of our four post-1938 models has a unique paint scheme, prototypically accurate for a specific time frame.  The most visible detail differences between the early and late Blue Goose versions are the removal of the full skirts and the addition of the scissor smokestack and associated equipment.   

All of the models have hand-crafted brass boilers, cabs, and tender bodies, and die cast locomotive and tender chassis.   In addition to the Paragon4 versions, each model is available in our Stealth Series.  These are No-Sound / DCC-Ready models that operate on DC out of the box, or a modeler can easily install their DCC decoder of choice.  Out of the box, front and rear lights are directional, and other lights are always illuminated with track power.  Additionally, some lightning may be missing depending on selected aftermarket decoder the modeler installs.  See below for additional model features including the full list of individually controllable lights.
