BROADWAY LTD (HO SCALE) MILWAUKEE S-3 WITH ROLLING THUNDER PARAGON 3 SOUND

ALL NEW TOOLING - NEW MODEL NEVER DONE BEFORE BY BROADWAY LTD

Occasionally, a prototype is so heavily requested that we feel compelled to produce  it, at least in part, out of sheer obligation to our faithful customers. The Milwaukee S-3 is one such prototype. Behind only the PRR H10s, the Milwaukee S-3 is our most requested steam locomotive and we are pleased to offer it to our enthusiastic  Milwaukee modelers!

The S-3 is the culminating iteration of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad’s own 1930 S-1 “Northern” design. In 1937, Baldwin delivered 30 S-2s into service and in 1940 delivered another 10 S-2 locomotives.

Finally, in 1943, 10 S-3 locomotives -- road numbers 260 -269 -- were delivered to assist in the wartime effort, this time from the ALCO. A slightly leaner version of its elder brother the S-2, the S-3 weighs in at 460,000lbs with a tractive effort of 62,040lbs.

Having  served only 10 years in its designed capacity, the “North Star Rail” decided in 1991 to restore the locomotive for mainline excursions.

The #261 S-3 is currently owned and maintained by Minneapolis-based Friends of the 261, which runs  excursions seasonally.

Since completion of its restoration in 1993, #261 has run over 25,000 miles under its own power!
