Kato HO Scale: Superliner I Diner - Phase VI - Amtrak
The Superliner I fleet was built in 1979 by Pullman Standard. Amtrak’s Superliners were based on the famous Budd built Hi-Levels operated by the Santa Fe railroad, for their El Capitan all-coach train. Amtrak passenger trains can run with a variety of car combinations, including lounge cars, dining cars, and sleepers on longer distance trains, with shorter trains running mostly coaches with perhaps a dining car and a coach/baggage car.
All Kato Superliner cars and Material Handling Cars come with preinstalled detailing and thin railings. The passenger cars have complete upper and lower level interior detailing (which can be lit with the installation of an optional interior lighting kit sold separately), prototypical fluting on the exterior of the cars, and flush mounted and tinted windows. All cars have smooth rolling trucks with working bearing caps and shock absorber construction, and are weighted for a hefty feel and performance. The included Kinematic tight-lock couplers can be installed on both passenger and MHC’s.
