Kato is proud to announce a brand new Passenger car set – designed to replicate the continent-spanning trains of the Canadian National during the late 60’s and 70’s, this “Transcontinental” CN 7-Car Train will come packaged in Kato’s bookcase style packaging and will be released alongside a new release of F7A & F7B locomotives in CN’s signature black and white striped paint from the era!
This set uses a variety of ex-Union Pacific, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania cars which the CN acquired over the years as they built up their passenger service in the pre-VIA Rail days.
This set includes the following:
1 each 106-0425 Canadian National F7AB DC engine set, cab numbers 9080 and 9057
1 each 106-102 Canadian National "Transcontinental" 7-car train set
The passenger set is made up of the following cars:
Ex-Union Pacific Baggage car #9160
