The Lehigh Valley's passenger service was still struggling in 1939 and badly in need of a new image. Shortly after introducing a new "streamlined" gas-electric car the railroad unveiled a stunning new passenger train named for noted industrialist and philanthropist Asa Packer. A compromised and more frugal approach to building a new streamliner the Lehigh Valley's Sayre shops completed the work designed by noted designer Otto Kuhler (best known to train fans for the Milwaukee Road Hiawathas.) Locomotive #2023 was given minimal new metal work a dining car was rebuilt into a diner/lounge and a combine and along with a combine and two coaches all were repainted in a striking black and orange paint scheme. The colors were meant to symbolize coal and flame - the core of the Valley's business and character. The train entered 6-day-a-week service on February 1 1939 between Newark and Mauch Chunk. The service proved popular and during the 1939 World's Fair the train even made two daily round trips! Eventually service was extended to Penn Station in New York and Wilkes Barre with connections over the Reading to Philadelphia. The Asa Packer is the perfect model passenger train - both colorful and compact! You get everything you need in one set - a LEGACY 4-6-2 with subtle streamlining and all four cars including a StationSounds diner. The entire train will comfortably navigate O-54 curves. If you're craving a longer train mixing in some conventionally-painted Lehigh Valley cars would be completely prototypical for heavy traffic days.
