The Empire State Express was part of the New York Central?s Great Steel Fleet, the name given to the railroad?s group of all-steel modernized cars. The inaugural run of the Empire State passenger train took place on Dec. 7, 1941, the same day Pearl Harbor was attacked. Despite this unlucky beginning, the Empire State became known for its luxurious accommodations and service. The train's cars were dubbed 'dreamliners,' a play on streamliners, to emphasize the upscale mode of travel. All the cars of the Empire State were named for NY State Governors, with the exception of six coaches built with numbers only on their lower boards. The steel cars of the Empire State remained in service until the end of the NYC railroad in the late 1960s.

This K-LINE train features our F-3 Diesels, which are loaded with details. Grace the front of your engine with a detailed pilot, remove the coupler and close the door, or replace the whole thing with a scale pilot. Brake hoses and other detailed parts make this engine a show piece on your operating layout. Equipped with Lionel Trainmaster Command Control, RailSounds, Smoke and Electrocouplers, this engine is as much fun to run as it is to look at.
