The Atlantic Coast Line and Florida East Coast
launched the first Champion on December 1,
1939 - just in time to whisk passengers from the
chilly North to the warmth of south Florida. The
trains’ consists varied over the years to include
coach, sleeper, dining and parlor cars as well as
head end traffic. Our models represent the look
of the cars around 1950, when roofs were still
silver, letter boards still purple and a round-end
observation could still be found on the tail end of
the train. The add-on 2 Pack features a sleeping
car appropriately lettered for the Pennsylvania
which handled the train between Washington
and New York. These cars will look right at home
behind your ACL or FEC E6 or E8 diesels or a
Pennsy GG1.
