Models of GN Empire Builder Cars that Migrated to Amtrak Service
When Amtrak took over the nation's passenger trains, it also acquired many cars from its member railroads. These cars were repainted into Amtrak's first paint scheme and ran systemwide. These Walthers HO streamlined cars are models of former GN Empire Builder cars repainted into Amtrak colors. Each has all the features you need for detail and performance such as appropriate trucks with metal wheelsets, interiors, working diaphragms, car name and number decals and built-in provisions for drop-in installation of Walthers DC or DCC interior lighting kits (sold separately).
PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation.
