Barreling down the track comes the Purdue Boilermaker locomotive in striking black and old gold. Representing the true spirit of Purdue University's engineering education reputation, the train makes only one stop - your home, decorating your Boiler den or gracing your garden area.

Beginning in the 1870s, Purdue teams had been called grangers, pumpkin-shuckers, railsplitters, cornfield sailors, blacksmiths and foundry hands. Still known as a premier engineering school, Purdue earned its present nickname in 1891 after shellacking a football opponent. A local newspaper headline proclaimed the team was "Snowed Completely Under by the Burly Boiler Makers from Purdue." A moniker was born - and in that very same year the university established a locomotive laboratory.

Your Purdue locomotive comes in authentic school colors (or in regal gray vintage or rich bronze finishes) and is manufactured of premium cast stone. With the legend "Purdue" on the cowcatcher on the front and "Boilermakers" in the trailing steam on the back, all opponents (including those from that other Indiana school) will know that Purdue pride can't be denied.
