N Scale KATO Union Pacific Excursion Train 7 Car Set Item #106-086
Almost no other railroad in this country has retained its historical equipment and honored its past like the Union Pacific. The preservation of its fleet speaks to the high value Union Pacific places on its heritage and its role in America’s history.
The Union Pacific prides itself on its history and retains a fleet of cars from its past to use with excursion trains – these special trains, often pulled by special locomotives such as the FEF-3 #844, allow people to experience a classic passenger train experience in a modern day setting, and often feature special cars such as the “Promeontory”Museum Car – a 1962 vintage baggage car which has been filled from top to bottom with interactive displays outlining the railroad’s colorful and storied history.
The 7-car Excursion train consist features two brand new cars – A Power Car (A modified/rebuilt Baggage Dormitory car prototypically used for providing head end power to the trailing cars) and a UP Business car “Kenefick”, forming the head and tail of the excursion consist, which also includes notable cars like the vibrantly decorated Promontory Museum car, with its full-body American Flag wrap, and a pair of Dome cars.
The Water Tenders are an all-new design and are sold as a two-pack for modelers to supplement their FEF-3 or other UP steam locomotives. Just like the prototype models, the two tenders are not identical, having (in addition to one car having an externally mounted American Flag plate) different weld mark details which will be replicated on the models of the two cars, ensuring that their unique spirit is preserved when translated into model form.
The 106-086 7-Car boxed set comes packaged in a collector’s style foam tray with removable inserts for modelers to also carry their 106-085 Water Tenders if they desire.
