The “City of New Orleans” car takes us back in time when the Southern Railroad ran their unique green colored engines and passenger cars. We designed this fast freight/passenger baggage car with Lionel to match the colors of their new Southern Cresent set. Enjoy the rich green background, creamy green strip and gold accents.
The “City of New York” car offers special handling for passenger and fast freight services bound for New York City. Large gray and white NYC lightning strips on this black car highlight the bold New York Central System logo as it is carrying mail, baggage, and other rush items on passenger or fast freight trains.
