Amtrak Acela (TMCC LOCO #2026, DMY #2029)
6-31714 | Price: $1,999.99
Reaching speeds of 150 miles per hour, the Amtrak Acela zooms along the Northeast Corridor between Boston and Washington, D.C. State-of-the-art at every level, the Acela continues to redefine American railroading. In 2005, model railroading will receive its own technological breakthrough with the release of the Lionel Amtrak Acela. This all-new scale model offers a long list of O gauge innovations. At speed, each passenger car individually tilts as it enters a curve—just like the real Acela. Pantographs deploy automatically according to direction, or at the touch of a button. At a station, watch the appropriate side doors automatically open with a CAB-1 command. Under official license from Amtrak, this painstakingly accurate replica comes to life with rivet-for-rivet detailing taken directly from Bombardier blueprints and Amtrak painting manuals.
Although sold out at the factory level, the Lionel Amtrak Acela may still be available at a Lionel authorized dealer. See www.lionel.com or call 1-800-4LIONEL to locate a dealer near you.
