N Chicago METRA Gallery Bi-Level Commuter 3-Car Bookcase Set

2021 Release Version

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:
  • All cars and locomotives are DCC friendly, with FR11 decoders available for optional 11-211/212 Interior Lighting Kits with LED.
  • 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.
  • Smooth rolling blackened metal wheels on all Bi-level cars with all-wheel electrical pickup.

This bookcase style set includes three uniquely numbered Chicago Metra Bi-Level cars, and by removing pre-cut foam inserts can be modified to hold a total of two locomotives and five accompanying cars.

    Includes:
  • 1 x Nippon-Sharyo Gallery Bi-Level Metra Coach #6078
  • 1 x Nippon-Sharyo Gallery Bi-Level Metra Coach #6189
  • 1 x Nippon-Sharyo Gallery Bi-Level Metra Cab-Coach #8524
