One of the most colorful and memorable road names on the rails in the 1970's and 1980's, Chessie System's stylized look was framed by a bright yellow, blue, and orange paint scheme and a beloved "Chessie" kitten imbedded in the logo.



Top-of-the-line 4-axle power in its day, a U36B locomotive takes the spotlight in this modern diesel set, pulling a hefty load of four distinctive freight cars. The hicube boxcar in this set features the famous "Sleeps like a Kitten" logo used in Chessie System advertising. The 4-Bay hopper features an all-new woodchip extension on the roof of the car, a first-time offering by Lionel. The gondola carries two removable coil covers and the detail extended vision caboose comes equipped with interior illumination.
