Developed to allow for the use of a larger than usual firebox (needed to burn the hard coal of the anthracite region of the Northeast), camelback locomotives placed the cab astride the boiler allowing it's engineer unobstructed sitelines.
Camelbacks were particularly known for being used on the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Reading Railroad.
Based on a Central Railroad of New Jersey prototype, Lionel conceptualized this "what if" Blue Comet paint scheme and added LEGACY, Bluetooth and enhanced LEGACY® RailSounds® sound system featuring:
- CrewTalk™ dialog with different scenarios depending on whether the locomotive is in motion or stopped
- TrainSounds that mimic operating dialog when the locomotive is in motion or stopped
- Six official railroad speeds with CrewTalk dialog
- DynaChuff™ synchronized with 32 levels of intensity as the locomotive gains speed
- LEGACY® “Real-Time Quilling Whistle” control with instant response for realistic signature “quilling” and correctly timed warning signals--5 different whistles to choose from for a more customized experience
- Single hit or continuous mechanical bell sounds--5 levels of bell pitching for customized sounds
- Sequence Control: plays the sound effects of an entire trip, including warning sounds and announcements, based on the movement and speed of the locomotive
- Current speed and fuel dialog, coal or oil loading sound effects
