The Chicago & Alton Railroad was a pioneer of luxury passenger service. In the nineteenth century, the first sleeper cars and the first true dining cars saw service on the C & A. Since the turn of the twentieth century, the railroad's premier run between Chicago and St. Louis was named the Alton Limited, often referred to as the "red train" because of its trademark livery. In 1924, although on the verge of bankruptcy, the C & A updated the Alton Limited into a railroading legend. A fast, Pacific type locomotive pulled a brand new set of Pullman steel-sided heavyweight cars, all painted in matching shades of maroon and red. Inside, the cars featured luxurious rosewood, plush green fabrics and even Venetian blue smoking couches. From its debut at Chicago's then under-construction Union Station, the "new" Alton Limited held the title "Handsomest Train in the World." In the tradition of the Blue Comet Passenger Set, Lionel presents an O gauge version of the 1924 Alton Limited.   A scale-sized Pacific type locomotive, fully featured and painted in "red train" livery , heads the Lionel Alton Limited Passenger Train Set. Matching heavyweight passenger cars include decorated and detailed interiors. Each car has a switch underneath for control of the interior lighting. A lighted "Alton Limited" drumhead and plated railing on the observation car deck finish off this very special train.

SET INCLUDES: 4-6-2 Pacific locomotive and tender, heavyweight combination car, two heavyweight coaches and heavyweight observation car
