MTH HO Tropical Fish Operating Action Car 81-99005
While we take pride in the prototype accuracy of most of our HO products, you will find items bearing an I-Series designation (and item numbers with an prefix) may feature imaginary graphics or stray from historical accuracy. These products are exciting and enjoyable for railroaders who like to use their imagination and just have some fun. Imagine if the BNSF developed a Heritage Series; of locomotives like the Union Pacific. A SD70ACe in Santa Fe livery would be a knockout!
These new operating action and aquarium cars take their inspiration from popular O gauge cars issued in the 1950s. There were in fact a number of prototype cars built to carry live fish, perhaps the most famous being the Nautilus owned by Chicago's John G. Shedd Aquarium but of course none had glass sides! Our new Operating Action cars feature backlit scenes that move as the car rolls by, with aquatic-themed cars featuring wavy glass to simulate water.
This exciting car features a backlighted moving animation strip visible through each of the cars four large viewing windows. Utilizing a quiet and efficient motorized player and bright LED lighting, the animated action really shines bright!
