Lionel 6-18292 Chessie U30-C Diesel Locomotive With TMCC

Sale price $229.99 Regular price $399.99

For 2002, Lionel offers two new liveries for our popular scale-sized U30C's and a newly detailed U28CG. The U30C gained distinction as GE's best-selling member of the U-series. These 3,000 horsepower freighters gave their archrival, GM's ElectroMotive Division, a run for their money. The Delaware & Hudson U30's in their brilliant blue, gray and yellow livery fought the tough uphill grades of that railroad's Pennsylvania division, and won. The D & H U30C is only available at authorized Lionel Service Centers. The Chessie System only rostered 13 U30C's, but these locomotives still drew top assignments, especially in coal country.---Unlike the U30C's, the U28CG's were first destined for passenger service and were commissioned on only one railroad, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe. Although the same in overall dimensions to a U30C, the U28CG had some distinct differences. It had a raised radiator section, scoop on its left side and steam generator equipment on its roof, which marked it as a passenger locomotive. Beginning in the mid-sixties, the Santa Fe used the U28CG to replace its fleet of aging F-units on its premier passenger trains. ---Be sure to check out our all-new Santa Fe Superliner 4-packs. These intricately detailed cars are the perfect complement to this one-of-a-kind passenger locomotive.
