  • Each car is equipped with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and shock absorber construction for smooth and reliable operation
  • Interior of cars can be lighted with optional installation of Kat #11-209/210 Interior Light Kit with White LED
Prototype Information
Amtrak's Predecessor:
Formed in 1968 from the Pennsylvania and New York Central Railroads, the Penn Central was a short lived railroad that nonetheless paved the way for a government funded and operated rail passenger service (when it bankrupted in 1970 and left the densely populated northeast without any form of reliable rail transportation) and was notable for its "mismatched" paint schemes (referred to by some as the "rainbow era" trains for the variety of colors) on its passenger equipment.

Model the earliest days of Amtrak: KATO announces two new passenger car sets and locomotives to accompany its release of the Amtrak and Penn Central GG1 Locomotives.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
