Broadway Limited Imports has long been known for its expertise in steam locomotive production -- especially Pennsy steam. With the successful launch of models representing some of the PRRs most well-known prototypes, the L1s is an exciting and logical next step in the BLI Pennsy steam collection.

The L1s is the predecessor to the I1sa and the M1a/b and it shares the same boiler as the K4s. Our renditions of this Pennsylvania classic will include Pre-1946 versions as well as Post War versions. Units for DT&I and L&NE will also be made available.

Serious Pennsy modelers have been begging for this model for a long time and we are happy to oblige.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the PRRT&HS for their efforts in helping us to achieve the most accurate L1s model possible.
