With the distinctive “Blat” of its single-chime horn and burbling throb of its Alco diesel, a Santa Fe RS-3 rolls into town with the local freight ready to go to work. From siding to siding, the train is busy picking up and setting out cars, serving the Santa Fe’s customers with prompt and friendly service.
Just like that local is the starting point for many freight cars’ journeys, the new Santa Fe Scout Set can be the beginning of your railroad adventure. With everything you need to get started in our easy-to-assemble, easy-to-control ready to run set, the Santa Fe Scout is packed with value.
Equipped with our new LionChief Remote Control system, the Santa Fe RS-3 and set are ready to go right out of the box. Just snap together the FasTrack oval, plug in the power supply, put the train on the track and go. The locomotive comes to life with realistic sounds and smooth performance. The engine includes:
- Walk-around radio control with the LionChief Remote
- RailSounds RC with diesel revving, horn, bell and user activated crew dialog
- On/Off switch for sound
- Operating headlights
- Lighted interior
- Maintenance Free Motor
- Operating couplers
The LionChief Remote is the most user-friendly control system Lionel has ever created. Easy enough for young engineers to learn and love, the whole family can have fun playing with this set together.
Trailing behind the locomotive are a gondola with a pair of removable containers, boxcar with opening doors and a caboose – perfect for a busy local freight that can be loaded and unloaded with many products. And as your business grows, the set is easy to expand with additional FasTrack, cars and accessories.
