This Amtrak Acela Train Set is a painstakingly accurate replica of the real Amtrak Acela Train System that runs from Boston to Washington, D.C. Its rivet-for-rivet detailing is taken directly from the Bombardier blueprints and the Amtrak Painting Manuals.

This set includes: a Powered Acela Power Car, First Class Car, two Business Class Cars, and one Non-Powered Acela Power Car.

This set has the following features: TrainMaster Command Control equipped, able to run in Command Control Mode or in Conventional Transformer Control Mode, RailSounds 5.0 sound system with CrewTalk dialog, TowerCom announcements and many more effects digitally recorded from an actual Amtrak Acela, Odyssey System for speed control with On/Off switch, Hinged roof panel on the top of each car houses an interior light switch for easy adjustments without having to remove the train from the track, Infrared wireless system connects each car, Close coupling system allows near-prototypical distance between the cars, Realistic tilting mechanism leans passenger car bodies into curves at speed-just like the real Acela, Directional operating pantographs-offering manual control via a TMCC CAB-1 Remote Controller as well as a lock down feature for layouts with low clearances, Track or catenary power selection switch, Automatically opening passenger car doors with operating indicator lights, Authentically detailed interiors with passenger and train crew figures, Interior lighting in all cars including illuminated control panels in power cars, Directional lighting including prototypical marker light, ditch light and cab light operation, Lighted number boards, Realistic flush fitting windows, Separately applied details including spinning rooftop ventilator fans, Removable nose covers on power cars reveal scale couplers and lift bars, Dual powerful maintenance-free motors with momentum flywheels, and Die-cast metal sprung trucks on power cars and passenger cars.

Also I'm including with this set the Amtrak Acela 3-pack which features Two Business Class Cars and One Bistro Car essentially free! Through a dealer both sets would run 3000 dollars! This is a great opportunity for any lionel hobby enthusiast to own a piece of history! Sets were removed from box once to test that all cars functioned properly and were fully operational. You cannot pass up on this incredible deal!
