Union Pacific won the race to place a modern streamlined high-speed train into service. Their M-100000 streamliner hit the rails in February 1934, two months before the rival Pioneer Zephyr. Although the Zephyr received far more publicity, UP's M-10000 was exhibited across the U.S. on a coast-to-coast tour. Over one million people climbed aboard for a look at the beautiful interior and each received a souvenir coin made of the same material as the M-10000 body.
Based on the original 1934 three-car train, this detailed model is DCC ready and features a full interior with lighting plus reversing headlights and tail lights.
