FROM BLW/ZT... The Southern
Railway Passenger Set!
BLW/ZT Southern Railway passenger set.
When most of American rails were busy abandoning passenger rail service to Amtrak.
Southern Railway President Graham Claytor refused to follow, instead,
he kept Southern Railway passenger service independent. He repainted his E8s into the
classic green & white with gold striping/lettering
and added a 'Southern Crescent' logo to the nose of each E8.
Gaetan and I are proud to release this Southern Railway Passenger set "Amtrak minus one".
The trains depicted in this set represent what the Southern Railway would have been
running just prior to the start of Amtrak in May of 1971.
This set represents the highest level of detail we have offered so far,
frame rates may be a little lower on MSTS, but the models run extremely well on Open Rails.
