Introduced in 1912, the Broadway Limited offered superb luxury and service between Chicago and the heart of New York City. Flagship of the Pennsylvania Railroad's passenger service, it quickly developed a fierce and loyal following.

Always accorded the finest, the train was streamlined in 1938, and refitted in 1949. Just 10 years later, the Broadway became America's last all-Pullman streamliner following archrival New York Central's merger of the 20th Century Limited with the combined Pacemaker/Commodore Vanderbilt. Pennsy continued the grand traditions of the Broadway and there was a brief increase in revenue. But as the Pennsylvania faced mounting financial problems, even its best train was expendable, and the Broadway made its last run on December 13, 1967. The train soldiered on briefly for Penn Central until 1971 when Amtrak took over, running its own version of the Broadway through September 1995.

Walthers has stunningly recreated this train in HO Scale. As most of the cars were used on other Pennsylvania trains, modelers and collectors will be able to mix and match most of these cars as a starting point for modeling other trains from the Blue Ribbon Fleet.
