Habe über Werner Meer eine Mail von Walthers bekommen. Wo Mitgeteilt wird. Das die GN S-2 4-8-4 DEFINITIF nicht Produziert wird. Diese Seite bleibt aber trotz dem so bestehen. Da sie Irgend wann vielleicht doch noch jemand  Produzert. In DCC w/Sound.


... dieser jemand der sie Produziert ist Broadway Limited Imports und zwar in der BrassHybrid Serie mit Paragon Sound 3. Sowie DC/DCC/Smoke



WICHTIG

Allg. BLI P2 + P3 Hybrid/BrassHybrid vertragen NUR 14 VDC und nicht wie üblich 16VDC. Dies nur etwa 3 bis 5 min. Dann verabschiedet sich der Decoder/das Board mit Rauch und einem speziellen Duft...

In March and April of 1930, the Great Northern Railway received fourteen 4-8-4s from Baldwin and assigned them to the S2 class, numbering them 2575 through 2588. The S2s were assigned to the Montana division for service between Williston, North Dakota and Havre, Montana, and the Spokane division for service between Spokane and Wenatchee, Washington. One Great Northern S2, number 2584, still survives and is on display at the Havre, Montana depot.


BLI's mighty Great Northern S-2 will make its new Hybrid debut this Fall 2015 and we are quite thrilled about it. Why, you ask? Because this iteration of the S-2 represents our latest technology in Brass-Hybrid manufacturing to date! We hand-solder and compose the body shells of both the locomotive and tender using brass sheet metal and brass detail parts to achieve the most realistic and finely detailed S-2 possible all while utilizing precision-tooled die cast chassis for both the locomotive and tender to ensure the most reliable and precise operation possible. The end result is a GN S-2 that is far better than any mass produced unit, yet also better than any all-brass unit. A true masterpiece, indeed, at a fraction of the price of brass!


All of the images you see here are recently taken photos of production units of both the Open Cab version and the Vestibule Cab version. Hand soldering takes an enormous amount of time and skill, which is reflected in the investment required to obtain one of these beauties. But we promise that both the wait and price will be well worth it!

GN S-2 Class
 #2575-2588
        - History -

 

In March and April of 1930 the Great Northern Railway received fourteen 4-8-4's from Baldwin, assigning them to the S-2 class and numbering them 2575 through 2588. Intended for Oriental Limited and Empire Builder duty they were assigned to the Montana division for service between Williston, ND and Havre, MT, and the Spokane division for service between Spokane, WA and Wenatchee, WA.

The design of the S-2 Class 4-8-4 was somewhat of a departure from the traditional steam locomotive design on the Great Northern. Normally the GN preferred to equip its engines with a Belpaire type boiler, but in an effort to reduce weight, the S-2's were delivered with a radial stay boiler. The nickel-steel boiler tapered from a 85 1/4" diameter at the front, to a 94" diameter at the dome ring. It was constructed for a design and operating pressure of 225 psi. The boiler had a firebox measuring 138" long by 102" wide, designed to burn oil. A Walschaert type valve gear transmitted power from the 29" diameter by 29" stroke pistons to the drivers, which were 80" in diameter, the tallest on any Northern.

The only major rebuilding of this class was the replacement of the original friction bearings with Timken roller bearings in the 1940s. Some engines were temporarily converted to burn coal for a period in the late 1930s. Vestibule cabs were added to engines 2577 (in the early 1930s) and engines 2582, 2586, 2587 and 2588 (by the late 1940s).

S-2 engines were involved in two of the better-known accidents on the Great Northern. On August 9, 1945 engine 2588 was involved in the worst accident on the GN when it was on the point of the second section of the westbound Empire Builder. It rear-ended the first section at Michigan, ND which had stopped there due to a hotbox. The impact was so heavy that it split open the observation car, killing 34 people, and wounding 303. The ICC cited a failure to provide adequate protection for the preceding train as the cause.

Engine 2581 experienced a boiler explosion caused by a crown sheet failure due to a low water level at Crary, ND on January 9, 1947, killing the engineer, fireman and the Division Roadmaster who was riding in the cab. Following the accident 2581 was scrapped, having earned the questionable honor of being the last engine to experience a boiler explosion on the GN.


As the Great Northern dieselized, the S-2 lost its assignment on the Empire Builder and drew duty on less prestigious passenger runs and saw service in freight duty, where its passenger design proved to be rather unsuitable. All engines were retired by 1958, with some remaining in stategic storage until 1963. Only one S-2 survives today; 2584. She was

retired in December of 1957. In 1958 it was decided to hold her for historical purposes. On May 15, 1964 she was put on display at the Havre, MT depot, where she is still residing today as a fond memory of the superb passenger steam power once used on the Great Northern Railway.
