Northern Pacific Class S-4 4-6-0 from W&R Enterprises

W&W Hobbies has received information from W&R Enterprises on the "HO"

scale Northern Pacific 4-6-0 S-4 coming in three versions. All models come factory painted.


The NP Class S-4 4-6-0's were some of the last locomotives to operate on the Northern Pacific. Over the years some, but not all, received a power reverse. The power reverses were installed from the mid 1940's all the way to 1952. Almost all were equipped with numberboards in 1948. A few were equipped with flangers, and each seemed to have its own distinct tender. This is a locomotive long desired by the NP modelers.

VERSION 1 No. 1354

Equipment includes numberboards, power reverse, wood footboard pilot, Class 10E coal tender with high coal boards on the sides. A 1950's era model. Donated to the city of Pasco in 1956.

VERSION 2 No. 1372

Detailing will include numberboards, power reverse, wood footboard pilot, Class 10E oil burning tender with standard height tender sides. A 1950's era model. This locomotive pulled the Casey Jones fan trips out of Seattle for years. Scrapped in 1959.

VERSION 3 No. 1388

The model was one of the few 4-6-0's to be equipped with a flanger on the lead truck and a double pilot beam for clearance. Detailing is without power reverse or numberboards, but with low running boards mounted on the cylinders. Class 10E coal tender with standard height coal boards on the sides. A 1940's era model.


W&W Hobbies takes Personal Checks, Money Orders, Cashiers Checks, no Credit Cards at this time. Make checks payable to W&W Hobbies. Their will be a $250.00 deposit on each locomotive reserved. Shipping extra if needed. The NP S-4 is scheduled for late 2007. W&W Hobbies price will be an estimate at $1034.00, because W&R has an estimated price to the dealer.


Please get your reservations in early so W&R Enterprises can have an idea on how many to produce. Thank you for all the business.
