In a never-ending search for improved efficiency, locomotive designs continually evolved in order to strike a balance between peak performance and a pleasing bottom line for companies they served. During the steam era, one such offering was the H. K. Porter Saddle Tank 0-4-0 Locomotive. The larger water capacity of the saddle-tank design meant longer runs between fill-ups and greater weight and pulling power than its side-tank cousins. And in a never-ending effort to produce advanced, affordable model trains, Bachmann proudly offers our DCC-ready Spectrum H. K. Porter 0-4-0 Saddle Tank. Based on designs first introduced with our successful Side-Tank Porter, the 0-4-0 Saddle Tanks heavy-duty can motor and gear box represents the latest
