    Set #465"The Mountaineer" This Western Pacific Freight set is as seen in the 1954 yellow consumer catalog. It is powered by #2150 powered, and 2250 dummy which are a Twin set of FA-1 locomotives, pulling a Wabash gondola, a Nickel Plate box car, a Mobilgas tank car, a Lackawanna box car, a Union Pacific flat car, and a Union Pacific 1954 road number 3821 caboose. In the catalog this description is given of how this freight train ran. " Here is what railroaders like to call a "Hot Shot" freight. It travels almost at passenger train speed and stops only at the larger cities on the way to its destination. The Union Pacific has many such trains which haul freight and perishables to and from the West Coast in record time."

      Is this a test? The wagons in the box are different to the ones on your layout.
