N Gallery Bi-Level Cab-Coach VRE #V716 w/ Interior Lighting


The modern Nippon Sharyo-built Gallery Bi-Level is based off of the same concept as the original Santa Fe “El Capitan” Bi-level design concept, whose success went on to inspire such double decker cars as Amtrak’s Superliners and the Bombardier Bi-Level car which is also used in commuter service. Today, gallery Bi-Level cars such as those used by the Chicago Metra commuter service can be seen operating in several states across the United States, such as Virginia and California.

    Model Features:
  • Bi-level cars with built-in electrical pickup are DCC friendly, with FR11 decoders available for the pre-installed 11-211 version 2 Interior Lighting Kit with LED.
  • Prototype details matching the specific cars made especially for Virginia Railway Express have been carefully reproduced.
  • Smooth rolling blackened metal wheels on all Bi-level cars with all-wheel electrical pickup.
  • Bi-Level cab coaches feature directional lighting for push-pull operation, with alternate illuminating headlight and taillights with an on/off switch for mid-train operation.
This car will come with a professionally installed 11-211 version 2 Interior Lighting Kit with LED for ready to run lighting. As these items are made to order please allow for additional time (commonly less than 1 week) when purchasing.
