Wrapped in a specially decorated and printed bookcase style package, this re-run of the “Silver Streak Zephyr” will be a complete classic named train in a single box, containing both the E5A locomotive “Silver Bullet” (complete with prototypical skirted trucks) and the five-car consist that made up this CB&Q streamlined and corrugated train.

 

Set Includes:



    • EMD E5A #9909 “Silver Bullet”

 

    • Budd Baggage/RPO #1600 “Silver Sheen”

 

    • Budd Baggage Car #900 “Silver Light”

 

    • Budd Coach #4703 “Silver Gleam”

 

    • Budd Coach #4704 “Silver Glow”

 

    • Budd Observation #300 “Silver Spirit”

 

    • Specially designed bookcase packaging that holds all 6 locomotives and cars with additional room for an extra 2 E5 locomotives



To call the “Silver Streak Zephyr” famous before its time would be to do the all-corrugated, slick stainless steel train a disservice. Named after a movie of the same name which featured the CB&Q’s distinctive corrugated equipment, the “Silver Streak Zephyr” and its specially built EMD E5A unit “Silver Bullet” was a short distance luxury train that operated between Lincoln, Nebraska and Kansas City with stops in Omaha and St. Joseph.

 

Like the train it pulled, the EMD E5A was a unique piece of equipment - specially built just for the CB&Q so that they could have a locomotive which matched their Budd built corrugated cars, the EMD E5A was wrapped in shining stainless steel and ribbed with corrugated fluting that gave the CB&Q’s trains an unmatched streamlined look.
