  1. This model was heavily inspired by Seunghoon Yoo's Pioneer Zephyr model (Recreated by Ryan Smith in LDD in 2012, as seen here ) I redid the wheels where they were small fiction bearing ones and added a new windscreen using parts not available in 2012. The double-jointed shared bogies were originally taken from 10233, (Horizon Express) to replace those friction bearing wheels I mentioned earlier. The real-world Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (CB&Q) Pioneer Zephyr was the first successful American stream-liner, and made it's inaugural run from Denver to Chicago in May 1934. It arrived 1 hour and 55 minutes ahead of schedule with a total run time of 13 hours and 5 minutes... Note, the run time of a regular steam train pulled across the same distance in about 25 hours at much slower speed than the 77 MPH (124 Km/H) average of the Zephyr on this non-stop run! It was even featured in a fictionalized Hollywood block-buster movie, "The Silver Streak". (The original drama, not the 1970's comedy of the same name) This loco even started it's own Zephyr-mania, with everything from Ford cars to sports-teams having "Zephyr" slapped on the name. (Zephyr, by the way, is derived from the name of he Western Wind in Greek mythology) This model features three joined cars, with the power car up front, baggage / RPO (that's short for Railway Post Office) in the middle, and observation lounge at the rear. The rear car has a wraparound back window. Please NOTE: None of the cars roof sections come off, and their is no interior, to save on costs when this model is built in real life later this year, maybe around Christmas. The LDD file for the complete train model is here. Comments, Questions & Complaints are always welcome!
