MP36PH VRE Gallery Bi-Level Commuter Train Set
The Motive Power International MP36PH is used by a number of cities across the country for commuter service, their often distinctive and colorful paint schemes serving to make these locomotives the “figureheads” for local commuter service.
The modern Nippon Sharyo-built Gallery Bi-Level is based off of the same concept as the original Santa Fe “El Capitan” Bi-level design concept, whose success went on to inspire such double decker cars as Amtrak’s Superliners and the Bombardier Bi-Level car which is also used in commuter service. The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) operates as a suburban commuter line between the Northern Virginia suburbs and Union Station in Washington D.C., and utilizes the modern Nippon-Sharyo gallery cars among others to move more than 17,000 riders per day.
This set is part of Kato's "Starter Series" basic train line and contains a locomotive as well as three passenger cars in a single, attractive package.
