Large Scale Mountaineer Train Set

ALL ABOARD THE SCENIC ET & WNC RAILROAD!

Beginning construction in the mountains of post–Civil War Tennessee, the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad Company was known locally as the “Eat Taters and Wear No Clothes” railroad. Narrow gauge operations began in 1881, but after nearly 60 years of operation, the developing interstate highway systems and the torrential rains of 1940 worked to bring about the railroad’s demise. The railroad was resurrected in 1956, going on to become one of North Carolina’s favorite travel attractions. Our Mountaineer ready-to-run passenger set comes complete with a 4-6-0 steam locomotive (with operating headlight, smoke, and speed-synchronized sound), coal tender, coach with lighted interior, and observation car with lighted interior. The set also includes an 8'2" x 4'3" oval of track (20 pieces), power pack and speed controller, illustrated “Bach Man” instruction manual, and DVD-format video instructions.

Civil War Commemorative 150th Anniversary Edition

HO SCALE 130-PIECE READY-TO-RUN TRAIN SETS

With the shots fired at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, the War Between the States officially began 150 years ago. Railroading would play a key role in the Civil War, providing logistical support and carrying munitions, supplies, and troops to each side’s respective armies in the field. With the formation of the United States Military Railroads (USMRR), the Federals gained the authority to take possession of whatever equipment was necessary to operate strategic rail lines in support of the Union Army. Lacking the financial power and the more standardized rail system of their Northern counterparts, a typical Confederate consist featured an assortment of commandeered railing stock, which is reflected in this model. Our Commemorative 150th Anniversary Edition Civil War Set honors this turning point in our nation’s history and comes complete with:

*     4-4-0 American locomotive with operating headlight and tender
*     Civil War era water car
*     Civil War era box car
*     Civil War era gondola
*     Civil War era flat car
*     Civil War era combine (Union)/bobber caboose (Confederate)
*     56" x 38" oval of E-Z Track® including 12 pieces of curved track, 3 pieces of straight track, and 1 plug-in terminal rerailer
*     100-piece set of Civil War military figures (blue in Union set/gray in Confederate set)
*     3 cannons
*     4 horses
*     power pack and speed controller
*     illustrated instruction manual
