A Union Pacific set powered by the FM H12-44 diesel locomotive. It has a gondola, a Box car, a flat car, and a Union Pacific caboose. This set is found in the 1954 catalog on page 5 with 2 other sets. #415 "The Suburbanite" And #440 "The Yard master" HObbyline released 10 sets in 1954 and all were nicely portrayed with in this catalog. A little mystery found in this catalog is, the front and rear cover make a single picture, In this are shown 2 train sets. one is a passenger set show within the catalog on page 6 and lists as a 1954 release. The other a freight train set with no name or number not seen anywhere again till it is listed in the 1956 catalog catalog. A little something for those knowledgeable in the history of HObbyline trains. I have added the front cover of the 1954 catalog and slso page 5 from within showing the Hilltopper train set.
