Product Information

A 1950s-Era Glimpse of the Future


 
"This train will save an industry" declared a New York Central advertisement in 1956. With passenger traffic declining in the mid-1950s due to the rapid expansion of the Interstate Highway system, railroads were looking for ways to attract more ridership. Many, including the Pennsy, NYC, UP and others hoped the AeroTrain would do just that. Featuring a wraparound windshield, multiple headlights, a low center of gravity and new air suspension, EMD's stylish AeroTrain debuted in 1955 at the GM Powerama.
 
Set includes engine, two coaches and an observation car. Recreate the original 10-car consist by combining the four-car introductory set with two add-on three-car sets (sold separately).
