The Broadway Limited California Zephyr 11-Car Set includes finely detailed cars to re-create the legendary "Silver Lady" that was the premier passenger run on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, Denver & Rio Grande Western and Western Pacific railroads. Racing between Chicago and Oakland-San Francisco the train was intentionally scheduled to operate through the grandeur of the Feather River and Rocky mountains during daylight hours, while the Nevada deserts and plains states were crossed at night. This practice allowed passengers the most breath-taking views of the route during the day time. Each railroad contributed cars to the CZ, lettered for the participating roads. The gleaming stainless steel trains were equipped with dome cars so passenger could enjoy the scenery in style.
This HO Scale replica features injection-molded cars with a nickel finish, authentic and accurate decoration, interiors, lighting in passenger cars and applied separate details. 22" minimum radius curves are recommended for smooth operation of the California Zephyr set.
