The UP K335 4-8-4 Northern locomotive was available separately and also sold as part of the K5210W train set. Only one variation of this locomotive was produced in 1952 only. This train set, along with K5206W, were the first two sets that included the use of the knuckle coupler (the rest of the product line was converted to knuckle couplers in 1953). In addition to track and power, the train set also included a #931 T&P gondola, a flat car with log load, a #944 crane car, and a #945 work caboose. Featured on page 13 of the 1952 catalog.
