NEW: Bachmann K4 with TCS WOWSound and Keep-Alive®


Bachmann K4 production model

We've got some exciting news rolling down the line: TCS is once again pairing up with Bachmann to produce a Pennsylvania RR class K4 steam locomotive with TCS WOWSound built right in!

A beauty to behold, this streamlined 4-6-2 Pacific features all-metal chassis, blackened metal wheels and side rods, die-cast metal trailing truck, separately applied detail parts, and Bachmann E-Z Mate mark II couplers. There are even painted engineer and fireman figures in the cab along for the ride. The locomotive will be available in four different road numbers.

You may have heard "It's what's on the inside that counts" and that's where we come in! Inside this iconic steamer, you'll find a WOWSound DCC sound decoder with Audio Assist® and a Keep-Alive® capacitor built right in. This gives you industry-leading sound right out of the box, no separate installation needed. This model comes packed with our entire library of authentic steam sounds including the whistles and bells from real K4 steam locomotives.

The included Keep-Alive® technology gives the locomotive the ability to run flawlessly over dirty and difficult track. Again, there is no need to fuss with a separate installation. Everything you need to be up and running your railroad in prototypical fashion is included in this model.
