*Very Limited Edition Set*

Revealed to the public and to then-outgoing Metra CEO Don Orseno back in December 2017, Metra painted a pair of their locomotives into special heritage schemes, starting with the Rock Island and then the Milwaukee Road, a tribute to the railroad commuter services who had come before and literally paved the way for today's Chicago commuter rail system.

To celebrate these unique locomotives, Kato USA is offering these MP36PH's, bundled along with a three-car set of Nippon Sharyo Bi-Level cars with unique road numbers only released for each set - each packaged in a specially designed collector-friendly bookcase carrying box. Each will include a signed certificate of authenticity from the custom painter and will be numbered - these sets are limited to 300 total worldwide!

Set Contents:
MPI MP36PH Chicago Metra - Milwaukee Road Heritage #405
Nippon Sharyo Bi-Level Coach #6120
Nippon Sharyo Bi-Level Coach #6090
Nippon Sharyo Bi-Level Cab-Coach #8522
Collector's style bookcase packaging with additional slots for additional cars or locomotives

Note: These locomotive and car sets will be offered as part of the Kato USA Kobo Custom Paint line, hand-painted and decorated by a master modeler in Japan. Due to the hand-made nature of this item, some minor blemishes and differences may be present from model to model.
