Prototype Information
The "City of Los Angeles" was one of the Union Pacific's "City of" trains, and a direct competitor to trains such as the California Zephyr and Santa Fe Super Chief. With many railroads in the 1950's vying for the attention of the travelling public, the Union Pacific spend 10 million dollars in 1954 to upgrade its passenger services, promoting its commitment to high quality passenger service as well as creating one of the most iconic trains of the golden age of american railroading.

One of the most iconic images of this train were its dome cars ("Domeliners"), which, like the California Zephyr, granted its passengers with an unparalleled view of the countryside as the train would make its trips between Chicago and Los Angeles.

Model Features
  • Brand-new toolings for many of the streamlined cars.
  • The observation car is depicted in its pre-modified condition to proudly display its unique, illuminated, signboard.
  • Each car is equipped with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and shock absorber construction for smooth and reliable operation
  • Interior of cars can be lighted with optional installation of #11-209/210 Interior
  • Light Kit with White LED (Light Kit with White LED is DCC friendly)



Prototype Information E9
  • The first year of production of the E8/9 by EMD was 1949. More than 500 A-units and 80 B-units would eventually be built.
  • The E8/9 diesel locomotive shared the similar "bulldog nose" carbody style as the shorter, more popular F7 and was powered by two separate 12-cylinder prime movers capable of producing 2250/2400 hp.
  • The E8/9 also rode on A-1-A trucks (powered axle-idler axle-powered axle), resulting in an exceptionally smooth ride favored by crews.
  • The E8/9 was produced in both A-units and cabless B-units. The A-units were usually built to railroad specification of either single or dual headlight and freight or passenger pilot.
    Like the F3 and F7 of the same time period, the E8/9 was utilized in both passenger and freight service.
Model Features
  • All units are equipped KATO five-pole motor with dual brass flywheels.
  • All units are equipped with the remarkably prototypical-looking, semi-automatic KATO couplers.
  • All units feature white LED headlights!
  • DCC Ready engines easily accept the Digitrax DIG-DN163K0A.
