An authentically detailed, handcrafted HO-scale model. Precision-cast in gleaming metal and polished brass.
I t was introduced in 1925 with the bold claim, "There is no finer train .... The "Crescent Limited," a powerful locomotive " created to pull the first premium-fare, all-Pullman deluxe train. When all other locomotives were black, this unique beauty was gleaming "Virginia Green," with rich burnished red trim. Emblazoned with a brilliant golden moon and stars logo and golden striping. Now, Franklin Mint Precision Models re-creates the "Crescent Limited" in its prem iere motorized HO-scale replica. Precision-crafted from over 100 components with no detail overlooked - from the authentic colors to the gleaming brass the coal-ftlled tender. Created from actual pho tographs and engineer's blueprints, then hand-assembled to exacting standards of excellence, this jt.llly motorized, traditional HO-model can be operated with train sets of that size. And at the issue price of just $395, this one-of-a-kind replica is an extraordinary value too.
