Lionel Legacy Pennsylvania K-4 #1361

Oh the engine I’ve anxiously been waiting for is finally here! The Lionel 6-11264 Legacy Pennsylvaina Railroad K-4!!! Famous Engine #1361 Enjoy the video train friends, and as always thanks for the awesome comments and all the views! History: PRR 1361 is a preserved 4-6-2 locomotive operated by the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) until 1957. This engine and 3750 are the only two preserved PRR K4s Pacifics. In 1957 the K4 was placed at Horseshoe Curve near Altoona. The Pacific remained there until 1986 in which she was removed and rebuilt to haul excursion trains. In 2010, the Railroaders Memorial Museum announced that the restoration at Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton was to be canceled, and the engine, when it arrives at the museum, would be reassembled and receive only a cosmetic restoration.[1], with the goal of operation pushed into the future.
