Modeling the shorter distance (and northeast corridor) Intercity passenger cars - the Amfleet II and Viewliner sleeper, respectively - these cars are decorated in Amtrak's most current paint scheme: the Phase VI (also known as "IVb"), which marries modern aesthetic simplicity with the traditional Amtrak red, white, and blue stripes. Pairing modern sensibility with Kato's proven track record of smooth rolling trucks and award winning performance locomotives, these sets are ideal for modern passenger modelers.
This set is part of Kato's "Starter Series" basic train line and contains a locomotive as well as three passenger cars in a single, attractive package.
Track and Power Pack Not included
The locomotive in this set is a brand new release by Kato, the modified Amtrak Phase V (referred to as Vb to differentiate it), which is the most current version of this locomotive operating today.
