A curious aspect of these sets is that the packaging was designed to accommodate a coach, a Vista-Dome and an observation car, yet they had two coaches and no Vista-Dome. The newer version is a single-header, replacing the dummy loco with one more coach and a Vista-Dome. Also, compare this set with Arnold's Royal Blue or Super Chief, released in 1964—had Trix's dome car been ready, the sets would be virtually identical.
