The Reading Crusader was the most famous passenger train ever operated by the Reading Railroad. Only one trainset was built, but two steam locomotives one with Cab #117 and the 2nd with Cab #118 were built so the train could continue to run while one of the locomotives was being serviced.

A Unique feature of the Train was that it had 2 (Two) Coach-Obseration cars, one at each end so the train did not have to be turned at each end of the line to begin its return trip. The Tenders on the Steam Locomotives had an extension piece on it so the round end of the Observation car, behind the loco, would fit into it and therefore present a continuous line of stainless steel down the train. The window shades would be pulled down so you would not see the back of the tender.

The Train ran between Philadelphia and Jersey City.

Con-Cor is expecting delivery on the lst Production Run of these models in early Jan. 2013. We are about 95% sold out now.

Con-Cor will also be making a DCC Sound Decoder for this fine model with Authentic Steam sounds. It will be similar to the Sound Decoder we already make for the Fox Valley Hiawatha Set. If the basic set is bought direcftly from Con-Cor Trains, we can
install the Decoder for you in the set. But you may buy the Decoder from any source
you wish and install yourself if you so choose.
