#49602 Northern Pacific Passenger Train
Lionel made its version of the Northern Pacific Passenger Train (#49602) in 1992.
The set comprised an Alco ABA diesel engine set and the traditional four passenger cars.
Three other cars and another B-unit engine were sold separately as add-ons.

It comprised a #48114 powered A unit, #48116 dummy B Unit, and #48115 dummy A Unit.

Because I don't yet have the Lionel Alco A units, this Gilbert unit pulls my train.
(Actually, it's the shell of a #492 dummy mounted on a powered chassis.)
#48116 Dummy B Unit Engine
#48920 Combination Car
#48921 Coach Car
#48922 Vista Dome Car
#48923 observation car.  Actually, it's a new 48923 shell that I mounted on the chassis of an old 963 I bought.  (I gave up on trying to find one on an ebay auction.)  I carefully removed the windows and diffuser and used them.
