This nickel model was manufactured by Lionel and is based on the Jersey Central Train that ran from New York to Atlantic City and stopped running during WWII. Its replica is accurate down to the names of the passenger cars: Faye, Tempel, and Westphal. It is intricately detailed, including interior seats, bathrooms, and lights.
