Lionel to make a special run Nickel Plate Berkshire #757 for MrMuffin'sTrains

Lionel to make a special run Nickel Plate Berkshire #757 for MrMuffin'sTrains 0

MrMuffin'sTrains announces a couple of special runs made by Lionel

With Lionel's 2018 Volume 1 Catalog out, we approached Lionel about making a couple of special runs for our customers, and Lionel has agreed!

The first is a scale Berkshire decorated for the Nickel Plate 757. You can read more about this engine, it's relocation and restoration, just below. 

Our engine, Lionel Legacy 6-85363 will be produced in a small number but be a fitting remembrance for this engine - one of five existing NKP Berkshires. The engine will feature all of the Legacy features of the announced Berkshires in the 2018 Volume 1 catalog.  With a list price of $1500, we are offering this exclusive run for $1349.99. No prepayment is required and the engine is expected in the 2Q2018 time frame. Please reserve yours here:

STRASBURG, Pa. — Officials with the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania say they'll soon transfer ownership of their historic Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive, S-3 class Berkshire 2-8-4 No. 757, to the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum in Bellevue, Ohio.

What happens when you're having a good time watching and playing with trains? You get hungry!

So the Muffin's are planning to add a diner to main street serving breakfast and lunch for our guests visiting MrMuffin'sTrains. 

We plan to start renovation of this building in early 2018, and plan to open before the Nickel Plate Heritage Railroad commences service to and from Atlanta, Indiana - like late Spring, 2018.
