From 2004. This ornament commentates Lionel Trains and the Southern Pacific Railroad. Based on a train known as the Daylight. Back in the long ago passenger trains had names for certain routes with paint schemes etc.
This one has a 4-8-4 locomotive with an oil tender and observation car.
The 4-8-4 was probably the best of all the steam locomotives. It could pull heavy freight or passenger cars. In the history of steam locomotives they added one pair of wheels at time when developing locomotives.
