The modern Nippon Sharyo-built Gallery Bi-Level is based off of the same concept as the original Santa Fe â€œEl Capitanâ€ Bi-level design concept, whose success went on to inspire such double decker cars as Amtrakâ€™s Superliners and the Bombardier Bi-Level car which is also used in commuter service. Today, gallery Bi-Level cars such as those used by the Chicago Metra commuter service can be seen operating in several states across the United States, such as Virginia and California.Model Features:
- Bi-level cars with built-in electrical pickup are DCC friendly, with FR11 decoders available for optional 11-211/212 Interior Lighting Kits with LED.
- Prototype details matching the specific cars made especially for Virginia Railway Express have been carefully reproduced.
- Smooth rolling blackened metal wheels on all Bi-level cars with all-wheel electrical pickup.
