Production: 1953 - 1963
The 2037 steam engine is also known as a Prairie-type locomotive. This mid-size steam engine is a dependable locomotive and it shares its boiler casting with the 637, 2016, 2018, 2026, 2029 and 2036 steam engines. Although the boiler castings are the same on these steamers, in most cases the internal components are slightly different.
Because the 2037 had a long production run of eleven years, it is a common steam locomotive.
Standard features of the 2037 include: black-painted, die-cast boiler with a 2-6-4 wheel arrangement, detailed driving-wheel hardware, three-position E-unit, Magnetraction, smoke, relatively-plain spoked drive wheels, sheet metal trailing truck plus an ornamental bell and a working headlight. The number 2037 appears in white on the cab of the steamer.
