|N Scale Bachmann Spectrum Series locomotives. By the late 1930s, locomotive manufacturers saw that the future of the industry lay with diesel-electrics. Among Baldwin's post-steam offerings was the RF-16, nicknamed Sharknose because of its distinctive cab profile. Introduced in 1948, the Sharknose was an instant classic with modern streamlined looks and a reputation as an excellent hauler, frequently used in ore and coal service. Originally manufactured for E-R Model Importers, Ltd., Bachmann is proud to offer N Scale Baldwin RF-16 Sharknose sets. Sadly, E-R Models is no more, but rest assured that the DCC-ready RF-16 set meets Bachmann's high standards for appearance and performance. We know because the Sharknose sets were made in our factories!|
