Product Description
New York Central's Mercury Train.  To great fanfare up and down its route, it was introduced in 1936 as the "Train of Tomorrow".  

 The famous industrial designer Henry Dreyfus designed the streamlined locomotive cowling to cover the work horse passenger steam locomotive of its day, the K5 Pacific.  And the immediate sensation that this train attracted - ushered in the streamline era of passenger train travel. 



This New York Central System train ran between Cleveland and Detroit and eventually onto Chicago from the late depression years through the late1950’s.  And this streamlined design influenced all passenger steam, electric and diesel locomotives that followed, and for years to come.



 Available from shapeways, this locomotive was modeled from engineering drawings from the New York Central System Historical Society and is available in a variety of materials and scales.  A more detailed model of this locomotive, its K5 Pacific base and its cars are also available by request.
