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. Compare this set with the ones released by Arnold in 1964, the Royal Blue or the Super Chief—they're identical.
