Brady's Train Outlet Custom Central New Jersey Blue Comet woodside passenger cars and locomotive.

What if the Blue Comet had all woodsided passenger cars? Woodsided cars were phased out from interchange passenger rail service around the 1910s, when they were replaced by steel-sided cars which offered improved safety for passengers.

Our Blue Comet consist was designed by our employees, who did a lot of research to ensure these cars were as authentic as possible with regards to the color scheme, details, and period. This consist features stunning period-specific gold highlighting and detail work! Zoom in to see the "BC" on the back of each car and the beautiful gold railings on each door. The observation car banner reads "New York and Atlantic City", inspired by a historical photograph.

Each car is named after a famous comet, with the car number corresponding to the year of the comet's sighting. 

  • Coach-- Donati 1858
  • Combine-- Coggia 1874
  • Coach-- Messier 1769
  • Baggage-- Newton 1680

  • Observation-- Viscara 1901

Our custom Blue Comet fantasy consist is a great value with a Legacy engine and 6 woodsided passenger cars!

Manufacturer Information

Engine features:

Once "big power" in the late 19th Century, Ten-wheelers later became mainstays on commuter and branch lines where their mid-sized drivers suited them well for rapid acceleration in both freight and passenger duties. Based on the New York Central's F-12 class, Lionel's model represents one of the more modern 4-6-0 designs to be found anywhere. Even with its "modern" size and appliances, these locomotives still retain some of the charm of their history. As such, we've included a few "Heritage" Ten-wheelers in this run as well. So, whether you prefer a workhorse for your milk run or something a little more stately for a sprint down the mainline, we're sure you'll find these a "10!"
