Kato, N Scale, 1560907, ACF 4-4-2 Sleeper, Santa Fe "Regal Inn" (Transcontinental Sleeper for PRR Broadway Limited Service)
Relive some great moments in history in miniature with Kato's "Broadway Limited" pulled by the GG1 and EMD E8A locomotives. The "Broadway Limited" offered the finest in luxury travel between New York and Chicago. You had a choice of six types of private rooms ranging from cozy Roomette to luxurious Master Room with a private bath and shower. It also had an Observation-Lounge and Club-Lounge cars with game tables, magazines and refreshment buffets and a Master Dining Car that served food in the traditional "Broadway Limited" manner. The GG1 pulled this great train fast, smoothly, and quietly between New York and Harrisburg leaving New York in the evening at 6:00 P.M. or arriving in New York at 9:30 A.M. every day. From there, diesels such as the EMD E8 would operate in pairs to take the train across the non-electrified route to Chicago, IL. This car replicates the prototype sleeping car that offered PRR and Santa fe passengers coast-to-coast service without changing trains.
