Crescent Limited

Southern "Crescent Limited" Set (LOCO #1396)
  In 1929, the Southern Railway gave its prestigious New York to New Orleans train a dignified make-over. Two-tone green Pullman cars, lettered in gold, perfectly matched a stable of Virginia green locomotives that hauled the Crescent Limited into history. The all-new Lionel locomotive provides an accurate scale-sized model of the elegant lines of a Southern PS-4 Pacific type. The authentic color schemes on both the locomotive and the cars are taken from actual Southern Railway painting and lettering diagrams for the Crescent Limited.
  A matching Heavyweight 2-Pack featuring two additional sleepers and a StationSounds Heavyweight Diner are also available separately. The StationSounds Heavyweight Diner includes customized recordings such as dining reservation calls, arrival/departure announcements and even the "clickety-clack" of the train rolling down the track. Most of the effects are now accessible using only a transformer for those who prefer to run in a non-TMCC environment.
