Broadway Limited Imports encourages everyone to patronize their local hobby shops whenever possible. For those without a BLI reseller within reasonable proximity, we recommend the following online dealers who regularly and reliably ship BLI products worldwide.
The Z74 series, Pennsy's mainstay business cars, features an intricate history marked by frequent reclassifications, renumberings, and name changes. These cars were used all over the PRR system and received several upgrades and modifications during their service life.
Several of the Z74 cars had rolls in American history. For example, Car #7504 was used by President Eisenhower on October 25, 1956. Car #120 was used to carry the body of Robert F Kennedy from New York to Washington D.C in June 1968. Sold to Juniata Terminal Company in 1985, it rode at the rear of the final westbound Broadway Limited run on an all-PRR route in 1990. It also operated on the last eastbound Broadway Limited run in 1995. It's safe to say these cars were icons of the PRR system!
These cars are perfect for Pennsylvania Modelers who are looking to add some style to their passenger trains.
