ALTON LIMITED PASSENGER TRAIN SET (LOCO #659)

ALTON LIMITED PASSENGER TRAIN SET (LOCO #659)

The Chicago & Alton Railroad was a pioneer of luxury passenger service. In the nineteenth century, the first sleeper cars and the first true dining cars saw service on the C & A. Since the turn of the twentieth century, the railroad's premier run between Chicago and St. Louis was named the Alton Limited, often referred to as the "red train" because of its trademark livery. In 1924, although on the verge of bankruptcy, the C & A updated the Alton Limited into a railroading legend. A fast, Pacific type locomotive pulled a brand new set of Pullman steel-sided heavyweight cars, all painted in matching shades of maroon and red. Inside, the cars featured luxurious rosewood, plush green fabrics and even Venetian blue smoking couches. From its debut at Chicago's then under-construction Union Station, the "new" Alton Limited held the title "Handsomest Train in the World." In the tradition of the Blue Comet Passenger Set, Lionel presents an O gauge version of the 1924 Alton Limited. A scale-sized Pacific type locomotive, fully featured and painted in "red train" livery , heads the Lionel Alton Limited Passenger Train Set. Matching heavyweight passenger cars include decorated and detailed interiors. Each car has a switch underneath for control of the interior lighting. A lighted "Alton Limited" drumhead and plated railing on the observation car deck finish off this very special train.

SET INCLUDES: • 4-6-2 Pacific locomotive and tender, heavyweight combination car, two heavyweight coaches and heavyweight observation car

SD-40 Southern Pacific "Warhorse" Coal Set

SD-40 Southern Pacific "Warhorse" Coal Set

The SD-40 locomotive was one of a new family of four "special duty" heavyweight, six-axle. high horsepower diesels introduced by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division in 1966. It marked the retirement of EMD's venerable 567-series engines and the introduction of its successor - the 645. The SD-40 was powered by the 3000 h.p. V-16 645E3 engine and A.C./D.C. drive and quickly became the family's sales leader.

The SD-40 was particularly flexible and versatile. But nothing expresses the functional elegance of this locomotive better than seeing it at the head of a long unit of coal cars winding its way through the hills and valleys of the backcountry.

It seemed only natural for the creation of this set in the "Warhorse" series. Dedicated to those symbols of railroading that distinguished themselves through long histories of proud work, the "Warhorse" series is weathered in appearance and aged in its character. In total, it acknowledges the truth that great trains only become legendary trains by the test of time.

This set is lead by the Southern Pacific SD-40 with TMCC pulling four #6446 Cotton Belt coal hoppers with full coal loads, and a #6517 Bay-Window Caboose with TMCC & Crewtalk, all weathered and all in the SP deco.
