Today at the National Train Show portion of the 2012 NMRA National Convention in Grand Rapids, MI, Kato USA has announced it’s next full N scale passenger train – The Silver Streak Zephyr.
As Model:160 previously discussed, Kato already has tooling for all the Silver Streak cars in their corrugated passenger car line, and only needs to tool the locomotive. And what a locomotive! Burlington’s gorgeous all stainless steel E5 were a work of EMD art. Slant nosed E units can only be improved with stainless steel corrugations added.
The 5-car set with E5 will include the following:
Baggage Car #900
52 Seat Chair Car #4703
52 Seat Chair Car #4704
It is expected to be delivered to stores later this year.
