Prototype Information —
The Santa Fe “El Capitan” offered coach travel between Chicago and Los Angeles using hi-level coaches, a diner and lounge, its double decker high-level cars providing a greater passenger capacity than previous trains.
Information —
Re-live some great moments in history in miniature with Kato’s “El Capitan” which was usually pulled by an F7A-B-B-A combination with our models time period during the last half of the 1950’s. The “El Capitan” offered coach travel between Chicago and Los Angeles using hi-level coaches, a diner and lounge. It usually had 10 cars but during the summer it increased to 12 cars. We selected the most popular time period of 1956 – 1958 when this train was operated and promoted and advertised by the AT&SF RR as its premier all coach hi-level train between Chicago and Los Angeles with a transition car and step down cars and operating tail lights and a drumhead on the rear of one of the 68 seat coach cars. In January 1958, the “El Capitan” and “Super Chief” were consolidated but during the high traffic periods (Christmas and summer months), the “El Capitan” ran separate from the “Super chief”. You also have the opportunity to operate this “El Capitan” along with the Kato “Super Chief” with all the correct cars. The train can also be operated with 5 locomotives as F7A-A-B-B-A.
