Produced exclusively by K-LINE® Electric Trains for Boscov’s Department Store of Reading, Pennsylvania, the Crusader was one of the Reading Railroad’s most unique passenger trains. This gleaming stainless steel, streamlined engine and tender led its five-car complement from Philadelphia to New York and the Jersey shore twice a day.

Making the 90 mile trip in as little as 93 minutes, Crusader passengers watched the scenery fly by from two observation cars, one at each end. This K-LINE® model is produced in semi-scale size but features all the details you have come to expect from a scale engine. This Boscov’s exclusive is an entire train featuring engine, tender, two observation cars, two coaches and a dining car.

Each of the 15-inch cars feature opening doors, overhead StreamLighting® illumination and prototypical interiors which are correct for every car. The die cast engine and tender boast etched metal detailing, an illuminated firebox and an operating smoke unit. Other details of this extraordinary offering include Real Sounds™ full digital sound, a three-position electronic reversing unit, operating marker lights and headlight and accurately detailed aluminum cars. There was no other train quite like the Crusader and there certainly is nothing to compare with this set you can purchase only through Boscov’s.
