In March and April of 1930, the Great Northern Railway received fourteen 4-8-4s from Baldwin and assigned them to the S2 class, numbering them 2575 through 2588. The S2s were assigned to the Montana division for service between Williston, North Dakota and Havre, Montana, and the Spokane division for service between Spokane and Wenatchee, Washington. One Great Northern S2, number 2584, still survives and is on display at the Havre, Montana depot.

BLI's mighty Great Northern S-2 will make its new Hybrid debut this Fall 2015 and we are quite thrilled about it. Why, you ask? Because this iteration of the S-2 represents our latest technology in Brass-Hybrid manufacturing to date! We hand-solder and compose the body shells of both the locomotive and tender using brass sheet metal and brass detail parts to achieve the most realistic and finely detailed S-2 possible all while utilizing precision-tooled die cast chassis for both the locomotive and tender to ensure the most reliable and precise operation possible. The end result is a GN S-2 that is far better than any mass produced unit, yet also better than any all-brass unit. A true masterpiece, indeed, at a fraction of the price of brass!

All of the images you see here are recently taken photos of production units of both the Open Cab version and the Vestibule Cab version. Hand soldering takes an enormous amount of time and skill, which is reflected in the investment required to obtain one of these beauties. But we promise that both the wait and price will be well worth it!
