Product Details

Limited Edition Collector SetThis listing is for a pre-order of the Reading Crusader Collector SetThe Reading Crusader was the most famous passenger train operated on the Reading Railroad.  Only one train set was built but two streamlined steam locomotives, one with Cab 117 and the 2nd with cab  118 were available so the train could continue to run while one of the locomotives was being serviced.

A unique feature of the train was that it had 2 Coach-Observation cars.  It had one coach-observation car at each end of the train so it did not have to be turned at the end of the line for the return trip.  The tenders on the steam locomotives had an extension piece so the round end of the Observation car, behind the loco would fit into it and present a continuous line of stainless steel down the train.  The window shades would be pulled down so passengers would not see the back of the tender.
