More info on the set:
East meets West! History was made 150 years ago when the Transcontinental Railroad was completed in Promontory, Utah on May 10, 1869. A face-to-face meeting of two locomotives and the driving of silver and golden spikes to join the last two sections of track were the climax of the famous Golden Spike ceremony.

This Limited Edition ready-to-run set has everything you need to get started in digital model railroading. It includes Bachmann’s exclusive, easy-to-use E-Z Command® digital system that lets you independently control the sound, speed, direction, and lighting of two decoder-equipped 4-4-0 commemorative locomotives.

Transcontinental Railroad 150th Anniversary of Golden Spike Bachmann Set

LIMITED EDITION SET! Only 1000 made in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad ceremony on May 10, 1869. The set comes with 2 amazing locomotives with sound. It is easy to set up and a great collector’s item as well as a great starter set!

This is the first time I have used DCC (I have been using old school DC for the longest). Really enjoy setting it up and being able to control both locomotives with one controller. Really neat!
