Passenger Train

After years of successful freight hauling, the Carbon County Railroad of Pennsylvania has decided to branch out into passenger service. After reviewing the suggestions from some of our customers and the mission statement of our model railroad society, we decided to keep the theme of the railroad the same but to move on to a different type of train. A train is being constructed and will continue over the next several years to offer passenger service to the region. The train will be made up of heavyweight cars that were typically used in passenger service. The train started with a baggage car in the front of the train, continued with three coaches and also contain, dining car, Pullman, and finish with an observation car. The cars all represent the same county boroughs we have used in the first freight set. All the cars will be painted the same color scheme, that is green with yellow lettering. We are planning to pull this train with a steam locomotive. Some of the cars are already out of stock and are not listed below.

Remember, we are shipping cars all over the country. Some customers have bought as many as 15 cars of each type. The cars, and indeed the train have been given as birthday presents, Christmas or Father's Day gifts or they make great collectable and conversation pieces. Remember only 500 of these trains are made and are spread out over the entire country. Some people who had missed the opportunity to get the first cars but managed to find out about the collection several cars into the train are looking to complete their sets. The cars are now in demand and are considered a collectable.

Don't pass up the opportunity to collect this very special train.
