In February 1941 the first run of Electroliners were advertised as America's first "All Electric Luxury Trains". Their unique design was influenced by the competition between CNWs 400 trains and Milwaukee Road's Hiawathas. Another factor was that the trains had to circumnavigate Chicago's EL tracks in the Loop and run down the middle of Milwaukee city streets. Electroliners were later sold to the city of Philadelphia and renamed Liberty Liners. One train was totally restored and is on exhibit at the Illinois Train Museum in Union, Illinois.
Con-Cor's 4-car Electroliner sets feature the turquoise and salmon color scheme. An undecorated version is also available for customizing.
