From the Manufacturer
To call the “Silver Streak Zephyr” famous before its time would be to do the all-corrugated, slick stainless steel train a disservice. Named after a movie of the same name which featured the CB&Q’s distinctive corrugated equipment, the “Silver Streak Zephyr” and its specially built EMD E5A unit “Silver Bullet” was a short distance luxury train that operated between Lincoln, Nebraska and Kansas City with stops in Omaha and St. Joseph. This Bookcase style set accurately depicts the original “Silver Streak Zephyr” in all its glory, including: EMD E5A #9909 “Silver Bullet”, Baggage/RPO #1600 “Silver Sheen”, Baggage #900 “Silver Light”, Coaches #4703 “Silver Gleam” and #4704 “Silver Glow” and Budd Observation #300 “Silver Spirit”.
