The Broadway Limited Imports Brass Hybrid Series 4-12-2 models include locomotives from classes UP-3, UP-4, and UP-5, and are detailed as the prototypes existed late in their careers.  All of the locomotives feature Boxpok main drivers, an enlarged straight stack, accurate sand dome, 6 external Brewster sand trap, and complete air pump plumbing.  The tenders sport modernized features including a crew grip box and stoker motor box.  Three models faithfully reproduce the "E-2 Nine" relocated and redesigned cab, which only Broadway Limited Imports has modeled in HO scale.  Being predominantly brass in construction, details unrenderable in other materials are beautifully included on the BLI 4-12-2.  BLI has worked hard to reproduce the distinctive sound of these locomotives.  Superb accuracy and attention to detail, combined with the fine running qualities of BLI models and the outstanding Paragon4 DC/DCC sound & control system make these models a must for every UP model railroad collector and operator.
