“Long” Amtrak California consist with DCC for coach cab and DCC sound for F59PHi. These are Overland Imports that were released in 1998 or 1999. They were sold out when they were released. I first saw them in the NMRA 2000 convention in San Jose. At time many thought that these were pricy models. However, today’s going price are much higher when found on Ebay, but I know that Union Station has some laser etched kits and decals to make all cars. However, I never saw the unbuilt or built kit. Walthers also released the superliner cars with Amtrak California paint scheme which is one of the cars in this consist. I have done some modifications, mainly DCC sound decoder in the F59Phi. However, the most extensive modification, is on the cab car: I custom installed the complete light package( minus interior lighting) : headlights, backlights, ditch lights and warning beacon. I also installed a DCC and sound decoder, so I have horn, bell, ac fan, break release, coupler and station announcement sounds.
