Lionel Legacy SW8 locomotive

Lionel has released an SW8 switcher locomotive in its Legacy line. Classic Toy Trains editor Hal Miller gives you a first look at this engine, which is loaded with extra details like a fan-driven smoke unit, operating couplers, unique number boards, a bell, a single smokestack, two horns, and so much more. But how does it run? You’ll hear the how the engine runs when Hal uses Lionel’s Bluetooth-based LionChief app, hear some of the crew talk, and listen to the horns.
