There have been many patriotic paint schemes applied to actual locomotive and cars over the years, especially around the U.S. Bicentennial period in the mid-1970s. In fact, official events of the Bicentennial celebration across America were initiated by the railroads with a 21-month tour of the American Freedom Train traveling through 48 states. Remembering the American Revolution and the binding pride we all share in the United States of America, Lionel presents a brand new freight set dressed in patriotic red, white, and blue. Inspired by actual cars on the railroad, this set features the American flag, the Presidential Seal, and the stars and stripes of the U.S.A. on the various cars. A unique Patriot logo is also spotlighted on the rugged U36B diesel locomotive and caboose.
