March 16th, 2016- Hillside, NJ—Atlas is proud to announce commemorative edition California Zephyr Passenger Car Sets for Atlas dealers and distributors, and limited edition California Zephyr Passenger Car Sets for Golden Spike Club members are now available for order.
Commemorative edition sets, sold through dealers and distributors, will be available in three boxes, containing four unique cars apiece, all of which will combine to form the complete passenger car trainset. The three road names available for these sets (CB&Q, DRGW, WP) are the same railroads that partnered in this train’s cross country trip from Chicago to San Francisco. By ordering any of the noted A, B and C road name sets, customers will be able to create a complete, prototypically correct, 12 car consist of the real California Zephyr.
The limited edition offering for Golden Spike Club members is a twelve car set based on the original, as produced passenger car trainset for the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy (CB&Q) railroad. Each set will come specially packaged with a numbered, metal certificate of authenticity. Available only in this set is the exceptional, all-silver 10/6 PRR sleeper that afforded passengers coast to coast service without changing cars. Members who purchase this set will also receive a 2017 primary membership to the Golden Spike Club absolutely free.
Car names for the commemorative and limited edition sets will not be duplicated across the GSC and dealer/distributor sets. The cars are expected to arrive in December 2016.
Additionally, the highly accurate F-3 locomotives that powered these trains will also be produced and offered separately by Atlas O. Road names available for these locomotives are CB&Q, WP and D&RGW.
Complete details and ordering information for the California Zephyr train sets and accompanying locomotives can be found on:
