1922040 – LEGACY Santa Fe “Gold Bonnet” Passenger Set – $979.99

In February of 1960, Santa Fe provided a special train for an ad campaign by General Electric. A single Alco PA was adorned in a special gold and stainless steel paint scheme, accompanied by four cars. The special train toured California for several weeks before the cars and locomotive were returned to their normal colors. With a gleaming metallic finish, this special train is sure to be a show stopper on your layout! This set includes a LEGACY PA and four passenger cars. While no photos of the cars have surfaced, it is understood that the train included a baggage and three coach/lounge cars which had their trucks painted gold for the event. Cars feature flicker-free LED lighting, die-cast trucks and kinematic couplers for realistic operation.

2122180 – Legacy Nickel Plate Road Freight Set – $899.99

2122171 – Santa Fe Valley Flyer Set – $2049.99

In 1939, Santa Fe applied modest streamlining and new paint to two Pacific locomotives for a special train which ran the route of the San Joaquin Valley. The Valley Flyer connected Bakersfield and Oakland, bringing patrons to the Golden Gate International Exposition. The six car train of air-conditioned heavyweight cars was painted to match. This was the Santa Fe’s first attempt at streamlining older equipment and the paint scheme is typical of what would come. The Valley Flyer service was short-lived with service ending in 1940. In 1941, much of the consist was used in troop service. By 1942, the cars were all returned to normal paint and the general pool. Both steam locomotives would roll on into the 1950s. Although it’s time in the California sun was brief, the Valley Flyer is a unique piece of Santa Fe history and the perfect addition to any layout. Our set includes a LEGACY Pacific with streamlined panels, combine, coach, StationSounds diner and observation.
