Märklin 37995 - Union Pacific Class 4000 "Big Boy" Steam Locomotive
Factory Weathered - Road Number 4014 - mFX Digital

SOLD





Gauge: H0    Era: III

Prototype: Union Pacific Railroad (UP) class 4000 "Big Boy" heavy freight locomotive. Version with the road number 4014, cooling pipes, and authentic weathering. The locomotive looks as it did around 1948.

Union Pacific has acquired the Big Boy No. 4014 and plans to restore it to operating condition. The Omaha-based railroad has relocated the locomotive from the Rail Giants Train Museum in Pomona, California to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where U.P.'s Heritage Fleet Operations team will restore it.

Model: The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and a sound generator. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion. 8 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive has an articulated frame enabling it to negotiate sharp curves. It also has Boxpok driving wheels. The middle driving axles are spring-loaded. The headlight, backup light on the tender, and the number board lights are maintenance-free, warm white LEDs. 2 smoke generators (7226) can be installed in the locomotive; the contacts for them are on constantly. The headlight, backup light on the tender, the number board lights, and the engineer's cab lighting will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. There is a powerful speaker in the tender and the volume can be adjusted. Coupler hooks can be inserted in the pilot on the front of the locomotive. There is a close coupling between the locomotive and tender. Steam lines are mounted to swing out and back with the cylinders. The locomotive has separately applied metal grab irons. There are many separately applied details. Figures of a locomotive engineer and fireman for the engineer's cab are included. Length over the couplers 46.5 cm / 18-5/16". The locomotive comes in a wooden case.

Highlights:

  • Factory Weathered - Each locomotive is slightly different.

Era II (1925 - 1945)

One-time series released in 2013.

Additional Information:

  • The locomotive can be used on curved track with a radius of 360 mm / 14-3/16" or more, however Märklin recommends larger radii. Due to the overhang of the long boiler, signals, catenary masts, bridge railings, tunnel portals, etc. must be installed for sufficient clearance on curves. The track must be well mounted due to the heavy weight of the locomotive. The locomotive can only be run through a turntable or transfer table.
