Introducing the WalthersProto(R) Chesapeake & Ohio George Washington!
 
For business or a relaxing get-away, there was no finer way to travel between Washington and Cincinnati, than the George Washington. Known simply as the George to its many fans, the train's unique personality was reflected in everything from hardworking heavyweights up front carrying mail and baggage, to impeccable service inside the rebuilt Dormitory-Diner. Travel back to a time when getting there really was half the fun aboard our newest HO Scale name train, featuring seven cars and matching E8 diesels.
