The Pennsylvania's I1's had a look that matched their reputation for brute strength. Dubbed "Hippos" by crews for their enormous boilers and lumbering stride, the I1s were appreciated for their power, but not much else. Although rated for up to 50 mph running, smaller than adequate counter balances gave a rough ride. Preferred service was at slower speeds. The I1's remained prime power for drag freights like coal and ore, helpers and even hump yard power in the larger yards. The most obvious variations on the 2-10-0s were in assigned tenders, which varied greatly in capacity depending on the locomotives' assigned roles. New to the Lionel roster, the Pennsy's amazing I1 is now available for the first time with LEGACY and Bluetooth control, RailSounds and Whistle steam! We've produced two numbers each in four different combinations of early and modernized front ends paired with standard and long-haul tenders. Mix and match as the Pennsy often did. And it was not uncommon to see pairs of Hippos on both ends of a heavy train fighting the mountains.
