Product Information

Matthias Forney’s locomotive was designed to power elevated and surface commuter railroads in America’s rapidly growing cities. It was very successful in this role but its success seemed short-lived due to the electrification of these rail lines. The unique design of Forney’s locomotive enabled it to live on and made it an ideal form of motive power on railroads hauling stone in quarries, pulling log trains, and harvesting rubber on plantations as far away as Brazil. Bachmann continues this tradition by bringing you a revolutionary design from the past and updating it with exciting new engineering features from the present.

• nonproprietary plug-and-play electronics interface to accommodate the control system of your choice, including DC, NMRA DCC, and radio control/battery operation
