LIMITED EDITION HO TRANSCONTINENTAL TRAIN with DIGITAL SOUND

CELEBRATES 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF GOLDEN SPIKE CEREMONY

East meets West! History was made 150 years ago when the Transcontinental Railroad was completed in Promontory, Utah on May 10, 1869. President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Pacific Railroad Act into law on July 1, 1862, starting the race for the Central Pacific on the West Coast and the Union Pacific in the Mid-West to build a railroad that would stretch across the vast American continent. A remarkable feat of engineering, it took the back-breaking labor of thousands of workers to blast tunnels through the Sierra Nevada Mountains and build bridges across countless rivers and canyons. A face-to-face meeting of two locomotives and the driving of silver and golden spikes to join the last two sections of track by the Central Pacific president, Leland Stanford, were the climax of the famous Golden Spike ceremony. Now you can celebrate this momentous event with the DCC sound-equipped Transcontinental train set. This Limited Edition ready-to-run set has everything you need to get started in digital model railroading. It includes Bachmann’s exclusive, easy-to-use E-Z Command® digital system that lets you independently control the sound, speed, direction, and lighting of two decoder-equipped 4-4-0 commemorative locomotives.
