Challengers for the first time in American Flyer S Gauge

With the advent of diminished locomotive production due to World War II demands and restrictions, many western railroads were hungry for top performing and even more powerful steamers. A number of railroads believed the most suitable of these was the articulated Challenger. A behemoth of its day, it boasted enough horsepower to haul both freight and passengers in excess of 80 miles per hour, with all the efficiency and torque required to run up steep, mountainous grades.
