Product Description

New York Central's Mercury Train.  Introduced in 1936, it initially ran between Cleveland and Detroit, and was met with great fanfare up and down its route and promoted as the "Train of Tomorrow"

 The famous industrial designer Henry Dreyfus designed this streamlined locomotive cowling to cover the work horse passenger steam locomotive of its day, the K5 Pacific (4-6-2).  And the immediate sensation that this train attracted – helped usher 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 and for the next twenty years.  This streamlined design help influence the design of all passenger steam, electric and diesel locomotives for years to come.

 Available from shapeways, this locomotive cover was modeled from drawings acquired from the New York Central System Historical Society and is available in HO scale (1:87) in a variety of materials.  This shell is designed to fit over a HO scale motorized steam locomotive base unit.  These base units may come in variety of forms so the interior of this shell is mostly open to accommodate this with 0.05” walls.  Modification will be needed for your specific needs.  However, if specific details and mounts are desired to be added in a printed 3D model please make contact.  Also, a more detailed model of the base locomotive, the K5 Pacific (4-6-2), the tender, its cars from the original 1936 train set are in various stages of modeling will be available soon or by request.

 All models can be modified for specific needs and at reasonable prices, please make contact for details and estimates.
