American Flyer K335 Northerner

This is American Flyer’s largest steam engine. Made in 1952 only, the K in K335 refers to the knuckle coupler. Earlier Northerners - 332, 332AC and 332DC had link and pin couplers.

This loco is also called the Challenger because Flyer referred to it as the Northerner and as the Challenger in their catalogs.
