From Me:
I've got this train set out of the box and on my tracks. I love the look of this locomotive and it runs well too, in fact this locomotive is my favorite of all my diesels after my Proto 2000s.
This is the best locomotive of all the sets. It's heavy and strong, I use it all the time or as much as the ones from set #8.
The cars are all in their original condition, with truck mounted horn-hook couplers. As is the caboose.
This set comes with brass track, an oval. I'll sell you the track for a good price.
This train set sold in the Loblaws chain of grocery stores for $?CAD, from 1995 November till they were out of stock.

Text on the box:

The 1995 PC Insider's Express lets you expeience the feel of an authentic freight train like never before.

This deluxe quality HO train is a realistic reproduction of the working freight trains in daily use across the continent. From the fully operational Loading Crane with accompanying Boom Car, to the careful detailing of the Reefer and Box Cars, you can't get any closer to the real thing.

Heading up this hefty load is the pride of CN North American: the mighty SD-35 diesel locomotive, a high-powered hauler that more than pulls its own weight.

Modeled after a potent locomotive typically weighing an imposing 360,00 lb, our version remains faithful to the spirit of the original with a massive 1lb, 1.2oz of total engine weight powering 12-wheel drive mechanism. This is clearly a powerhouse with more than enough strength to pull every freight car from every PC Insider's Express electric train set to date and then some!
The PC SD-35 locomotive will pull up to 40 properly maintained cars, excluding locomotives, on a straigh run.

The SD-35s finely engraved molded body has been carfully painted and accurately apointed. Boasting fine detail such as diode-controled headlights and separet add-on handrails, this locomotive is truly worthy of the original.

With the superb SD-35 diesel locomotive firmly in command, the latest version of the The PC Insider's Express is guaranteed to put you on the fast track to authentic railroad action!
