A staple in yards around the Pennsy’s system, the B6 was a reliable and powerful switcher. Despite their rough ride, some managed to get out of the yards on occasions for local switch work and even the occasional rail fan excursion! Consequently, some were fitted with larger tenders like those carried by light Consolidations and Atlantics. So versatile were these locomotives, that a B6 would be the last steam locomotive in service on the PRR. That same versatility and reliability comes to your railroad in these Lionel models! Perfect for railroads of any size, the B6sb is packed with detail, LEGACY and Bluetooth control, smoke, sounds and ElectroCouplers. A tethered connection between the locomotive and tender provides more electrical pick-ups for smooth operation at low speeds and across switches so you can make this locomotive crawl around your yards. For the first time, the model is available with either slope back or larger tenders as found on the prototype.
