The Union Pacific joins the Santa Fe, New York Central and Pennsylvania in our popular “Flyer” line of Ready To Run sets in 2012. The Union Pacific Flyer (6-30188) includes everything you need to get started, and is will also make an action-packed addition to your existing layouts.
Heading up the train is our reliable and powerful USRA 0-8-0 switcher. With its powerful motor, metal body and traction tires, this little locomotive will pull long trains. Working couplers on the pilot and rear of the tender allow you to handle cars at both ends just like the prototypes. The locomotive also features transformer controlled forward / neutral / reverse operaation, working headlight and a steam whistle. It looks as good as it runs with realistic valve gear and a detailed cab including the crew.
The action doesn’t stop at the locomotive. An operating brakeman boxcar recalls the daring and dangerous job brakemen faced walking along the rooftops of freight cars to set handbrakes. This Lionel classic is sure to add to the interest of your layout as well. A flatcar carries removable truck trailers and a gondola has removeable covers. Of course, a lighted caboose brings up the rear! All cars feature metal wheels and working couplers.
Like all of our sets, you’ll also get everything else you need to get started, including a 40″x60″ oval of FasTrack, a CW-80 transformer and smoke fluid for your locomotive. The set comes with O-36 curves, but the train will negotiate an O-27 curve, so it will work on any layout. All of this comes at an MSRP of $329.99.
