These models are not new tooling (IE, they were all recycled from earlier Kato passenger car sets - Smoothside, Broadway Ltd, and Olympian Hiawatha). The set is designed to replicate the continent-spanning trains of the Canadian National during the late 60ís and 70ís. This "Transcontinental" CN seven-car train comes packaged in Katoís bookcase style packaging. The set uses a variety of ex-Union Pacific, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania cars which the CN acquired over the years as they built up their passenger service in the pre-VIA Rail days. F7A & F7B locomotives in CNís signature black and white striped paint from the era were released at the same time as this set.
