Kato N 1560963 Nippon Sharyo Gallery Bi-Level Cab-Coach Chicago Metra #8593

The modern Nippon Sharyo-built Gallery Bi-Level is based off of the same concept as the original Santa Fe El Capitan Bi-level design concept, whose success went on to inspire such double decker cars as Amtrak’s Superliners and the Bombardier Bi-Level car which is also used in commuter service. Today, gallery Bi-Level cars such as those used by the Chicago Metra commuter service can be seen operating in several states across the United States, such as Virginia and California.

  • Designed to be pulled by either MPI MP36PH or EMD F40PH locomotives.
  • All cars are DCC friendly, with FR11 decoders available for optional 11-211/212 Version 2 Interior Lighting Kits with LED.
  • Bi-Level cab coaches feature directional lighting for push-pull operation, with alternate illuminating headlight and taillights with an on/off switch for mid-train operation. An optional FL12 decoder can be installed in the place of the slider switch to provide DCC control over the directional lighting.
  • Smooth rolling blackened metal wheels on all Bi-level cars with all-wheel electrical pickup.
  • DCC compatible with the use of the Kato FL12 Tail Light DCC Decoder installed into the Cab-Coach.
