These models depict the New York Subway system rolling stock introduced in the mid 50's and continuing in service until 1988. Detail is exact, paint work is even and opaque. The only thing missing is graffiti. The equipment in this 4 piece set has been only slightly used.

As supplied from the factory, the powered unit was a straight DC prime mover. But the owner converted it to DCC and sound (Soundtraxx decoder). And he did more. There is a set of speaker extension wires from the powered unit which are designed to connect to an unpowered unit with a separate speaker. You will need to connect the wires together to get sound from the speaker in the unpower car.

That's an intersting and fun idea, but the DCC sound decoder is programmed for a diesel engine, so what you hear from the model won't be anything like what you hear from an electric subway car which makes basically no motor noise at all aside from a humming sound. Be aware, that if you were a strap-hanger in the Big Apple, this model will not sound like what you heard on the passenger platform. But hey! It does have sound! The sound may be silenced with a press of F8. Other functions control bell, horn and lights.

The powered unit ran around our test track with no issues, BUT it is slow. Not to worry, the real subway was slow. It only looked fast coming out of a tunnel. We have visually inspected all the unpowered units but have not pulled them around the layout. All the unpowered units include interior lighting.

The powered unit comes with a draw bar attachment for connection to other units; otherwise units connect with knuckle couplers.

There are some very minor appearance deficiencies -paint rubbed off on the skirt on the powered unit. Otherwise, everything is very clean and good to go.

Your receive:

  • #6652 Powered Unit with DCC decoder (address 6652) and speaker pigtails
  • #6508 with speaker and pig tail for connection to above unit
  • draw bar for connecting the above 2 units
  • #6868 unpowered unit
  • #6827 unpowered unit
  • Set or horn and hook couplers for each unpowered car
  • Original boxes and all paperwork.

If you check pricing on the Internet, you will recognize that this is an exceptional bargain.
