Broadway Limited Imports is excited to bring the Wabash Bluebird train to HO! In early 1950, Wabash ceased using their heavyweight trains in favor of the new streamlined Budd cars. This sleek new beauty was named the Bluebird, Chicago to St. Louis. Bluebird train #24 would accomplish its 165 mile journey from Decatur to Englewood in roughly 163 minutes, traveling at around 61 mph. Train #21 would provide the return trip. Passengers were treated to radio and recorded musical programs throughout the train. This striking regional streamliner became one of Wabash’s most successful trains due to dome service and its elegantly outfitted interiors. Successful enough for Norfolk & Western to retain the train until the advent of Amtrak in 1971
