The Uintah Basin lies in the high mountains of northeast Utah. It´s an inhospitable place, but it had one distinction: The Uintah Basin was once the world´s only source for gilsonite ore. The Uintah Railway was established in 1903 to carry that ore, and to conquer the difficult terrain, the railroad had to climb unusually steep grades, some greater than 7%. In the 1920´s, the Baldwin Locomotive Works built two 2-6-6-2 "Mallets" especially for the railway. This big LGB model is an authentic replica of the original No. 51. The model features two power units that enable the massive model to negotiate even the tightest radius of LGB track. LGB digital electronics reproduce the actual sounds of a real steam loco, including exhaust chuffs, coal shoveling, brake squeals and more. There´s even a flickering flame in the fire box.
