A first for Trainz Simulator. Take command of a majestic Chicago, Burlington & Quincy E5 and fourteen detailed variants of custom-built passenger cars which often appeared on the elegant Exposition Flyer.

    The Flyer has been called a "Study in contradictions" for its unique existence. It was intended to provide first-class heavyweight accommodation to the Golden Gate Exposition in the summer of 1939. However, it lasted until 1949, gained a substantial winter following, hauled large coach and tourist sleeper sections to attract a wider audience, and featured some of the first and finest lightweight passenger cars on the CB&Q and D&RGW rosters, even those which later became part of the legendary California Zephyr. This pack includes a basic cross-section of cars one might find on the Flyer along with its standard motive power on the Western Pacific leg of the route.

A detailed description of this pack's features follows:


    -CB&Q Phase 1 E5. Seven A units and five B units, all with unique weathering. Features class lights, working coupler doors, custom engine and horn sounds, and a fully functional cab. Details suitable for early era (3D MU covers, only EMD handrails, black markings, diaphragms and truck shrouds). FW&D 9980 is lettered for the Texas Zephyr.

    -CB&Q Class BA-11 Baggage car.
