Sale price $839.99 Regular price $1,199.99

Introduced in 1937, the Southern Pacific's Daylight trains became some of the most heavily traveled routes in the country. Cars and locomotives received a brilliant livery of orange, red and silver. Streamlined, state of the art 4-8-4 locomotives dubbed the GS-2 class became the very first preferred power for these prestigious runs. A near copy of the GS-2 was produced again in 1943 for both the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific. These 4-8-4s were unstreamlined due to wartime material shortages. Whether classed GS-6 on the SP or GS-64 on the WP, the locomotives performed admirably in freight and passenger service.

Both of these new scale-sized locomotives provide accurate replicas of two classic western steamers. With an open cab and 220-R tender, the Lionel GS-2 remains true to its prototype, the very first GS-2 Daylight, Southern Pacific #4410. An all-new set of Daylight 18" aluminum passenger cars is also available. The Lionel GS-64 marks the first time that this classic Western Pacific steamer has ever been correctly modeled in die-cast metal O gauge. Although based on the GS-2 boiler and running gear, the GS-64 included many notable distinctions, such as an all-weather cab and 235-R tender. Both locomotives come fully equipped with the latest Lionel features including the new RailSounds 5.0 sound system with effects customized for each road name.
