This set replicates the F40PH-powered Amfleet trains that were the first step in Amtrak’s revival of the U.S. passenger train. Its Proto-Sound 3.0-equipped diesel features Proto-Speed control for smooth, steady speeds from a crawl to full throttle; remote-controlled Proto-Couplers; and LED lighting. It also offers a full symphony of train sounds, from diesel motor to wailing horn, clanging bell, crew conversations and arrival and departure announcements for the Merchants Limited – which ran along the famous Shoreline route from Boston to New Haven, where the Limited switched to electric locomotives that would take it south to New York and Washington, DC.
