The CB&Q EMD E5A Silver Streak Zephyr 6 Unit Set:

The next big thing is here! Wrapped in a specially decorated and printed bookcase style package, the “Silver Streak Zephyr” will be a complete classic named train in a single box, containing both the E5A locomotive “Silver Bullet” (complete with prototypical skirted trucks) and the five-car consist that made up this CB&Q streamlined and corrugated train.

Also releasing this October, for modelers looking to supplement their fleet of locomotives for pulling the “California Zephyr”, Kato USA will be releasing additional individual E5 locomotives, without the distinctive skirting that would have been present when they were first built, making them appropriate for pulling later era CB&Q trains!

Model Features:

EMD E5A #9909 “Silver Bullet” was built specially for service with the Silver Streak Zephyr and was fitted with Skirts on the trucks and a covered cowl to emphasize the sleek, streamlined look of the locomotive and train.

The individual EMD E5A locomotive releases will have different printing patterns on the nose to reflect the “general use” versions of the CB&Q E5A locomotive, as well as have un-skirted trucks that reflect the locomotive’s later appearance when they would have been used to pull trains such as the California Zephyr.

The EMD E5 has a distinctive raised angular radiator grill arrangement on the roof that was specific for that locomotive.

A special feature of the new Kato EMD E5A is that the front coupler cowling can be removed on both the skirted and un-skirted units in order to mount a Kato magnetic knuckle coupler – this allows modelers to double head these locomotives when pulling longer trains such as the California Zephyr!

Another point of interest is that all E5’s were custom built with stainless steel corrugated sides so as to match the CB&Q’s stainless cars; a feature that gives these locomotives a noticeable shine and makes the matching Silver Streak Zephyr so elegant.

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.
