Expected Arrival January 2022.Along with a long standing and rich heritage, The UP maintains a fleet of historic locomotives and rolling stock for use at public day events and special business trips; these “excursion trips” are an opportunity for the railroad to show actual operational railroad history to new generations of railroad fans both young and old.
Many of the UP’s older heritage cars have been re-purposed specially for these excursion trains, such as the 1962 vintage Baggage car “Promontory” which has been rebuilt into a traveling museum exhibit filled with interactive exhibits and memorabilia from the UP’s past. These cars and more join well-kept vintage Pullman and ACF-built luxury passenger cars to help preserve the historic golden era of US Passenger trains as the UP continues to operate and support railroad exhibitions in the modern era.The Water Tenders are an all-new design and are sold as a two-pack for modelers to supplement their FEF-3 or other UP steam locomotives. Just like the prototype models, the two tenders are not identical, having (in addition to one car having an externally mounted American Flag plate) different weld mark details which will be replicated on the models of the two cars, ensuring that their unique spirit is preserved when translated into model form.
All cars are fully details and ready to roll with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and detailed interiors. All cars can be upgraded with 11-211/212 interior Lighting LED kits.
