Originally configured with a No. 616W powered car, two No. 617 coaches and a trailing No. 618 observation car the Flying Yankees were offering in a number of different liveries. Set does not include track or transformer.

Touted in the 1935 catalog to be the finest streamliner produced since Lionel's golden brown Union Pacific set, each of the chrome plated cars are connected to one another with a truck mounted vestibule allowing two cars to share a single connecting truck. Each car contains light sockets for interior illumination ensuring that these shiny runners look great day or night.

Returning to the rails in 2012, these all-new Lionel Corporation Tinplate offerings are configured with one No. 617 powered car, one No. 617 coach and one No. 618 observation in red and silver finish, just like the 1938 offering.

Available in both Contemporary, sound-equipped trim or with a traditional AC motor and e-unit, the Flying Yankees are sure to amaze all who see them run. Unlike the original 1935 set, only these Lionel Corporation Tinplate Contemporary sets sport modern features like streaming smoke, a vibrant whistle and clanging bell, constant voltage lighting and a smooth drive train that can pull the consist's cars and several add-on coaches.
