Kato N scale Viewliner II baggage car
If you like to keep up with the cutting edge of rail passenger equipment, Kato has a deal for N scale modelers. Viewliner II baggage cars are now on hobby shop shelves, hot on the heels of their recently delivered prototypes.

The prototype: The Viewliner II is the first new baggage car for mainline passenger service in the United States since the 1960s.

All of Amtrak’s former baggage cars were built for the railroads whose passenger service Amtrak took over with its formation in 1971. By the 21st century, the baggage fleet consisted of half-century-old cars that suffered from leaky doors that allowed parcels and passengers’ baggage to get wet, obsolete wheelsets and brake systems, analog electronics, and aging carbodies built by defunct manufacturers.
