Prototype Information:

Called The Most Famous Train in the World, the New York Central 20th
Century Limited is one of the classic and most recognizable named trains of
the 20th Century. Headed by some of the worlds most famous locomotives and
connecting the great cities of New York City and Chicago, the 20th Century
Limited - along with its competitor from the Pennsylvania Rail Road
the Broadway Limited - operated for more than 60 years.

Now, coming in late 2020, Kato USA will finally be paying homage to this
classic train in N Scale, recreating the train as it appeared in 1948-1954
(a perfect era match with the Broadway Limited), with a sleek two-toned
grey color and pair of streamlined E7A locomotives with brand new tooling
for this project!
