The Texas Special, which was operated jointly by the MKT and the Frisco, completed its transformation from steam to diesel in 1948 when the new diesels were joined with a fleet of streamlined aluminum cars. Our scale extruded aluminum cars are full of names that evoke the heroic history of Texas ? Sam Houston, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie. And they feature StreamLighting overhead lighting, detail interiors, and prototypical exterior decoration and detail.

The MKT partnership with the Frisco was dissolved in 1959 and by 1964 passenger service had ended, but the spirit of The Texas Special lives on in this beautiful 1:48 scale train.
