'Allegheny' Class Project Information

(Kohs & Company production model)

The 'Allegheny' class locomotive has been one of the most requested projects that we have entertained since the beginning of our model business and understandably so, being one of the finest and most powerful prototypes ever built. Although frequently modeled by others, our development will focus on service configurations not previously produced with an emphasis on accuracy, quality and the features that our company has become known for. We will include versions from all production orders including the Virginian 'AG'. The basic project features are listed below, special features unique to this project will be explained as we update our reservation holders throughout the development.
