The Amusement Park Ride-On Railroad.
This is the 1:8 scale ride-on electric train set that creates a backyard railroad, inspired by the types found in iconic amusement parks of yesteryear. Based on the classic narrow-gauge 2-6-0 Baldwin Mogul from the late 19th century, this backyard model is powered by four 250-watt, 24-volt DC motors that generate enough power to haul up to 1,600 lbs. at a 3% grade. The railroad includes 228′ of 7 1/2″-gauge track, configured to create a 60′ x 80′ oval. An adult driver sits atop the 18″-high tender, controlling the locomotive’s speed, forward/reverse throttle, and regenerative anti-lock brakes while two passengers sit in the 65″ L x 17″ W gondola car in front of a trailing caboose. The locomotive has an integrated 50-watt sound system that provides realistic, deep “chuff” and “puff” sounds that synchronize with the train’s speed, accompanied by whistle and bell sounds, and smoke and steam emanating from the smokestack. Four 12-volt DC batteries provide up to six hours of operation. Each car’s rugged, welded powder-coated steel frame, cast-iron couplers, aluminum trucks, and wooden construction provide years of use. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. (392 lbs.)
