The new 6-30158 set captures the character of today's Norfolk Southern.

The locomotive, a rugged GP38, featues dual motors, a metal frame, working front and rear couplers, headlight and Trainsounds. The loco’s unique paint scheme is inspired by Norfolk Southern No. 999 – a battery-powered locomotive rebuilt from a GP38 in Altoona. It is a fitting image for Norfolk Southern’s forward thinking, innovation and environmental consciousness.

The three freight cars are a perfect match. The high-cube boxcar features unique graphics from the 150th anniversary of Horseshoe Curve’s completion. The prototype can be seen today at the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum.

I do not buy starter sets (my trains and I are too old for that) but have fond memories if them so i it is always a pleasure to read and know about them. Thanks for the note.
