The Last of the Red Lettered Small Silver Streamliners

The Lionel small streamline passenger cars in silver with red lettering were cataloged from 1954 to 1958, a total of five years and the longest for any of the small strealine cars, but there was a change.  While the 2432 Clifton, 2434 Newark, and 2435 Elizabeth remained the same, in 1957 and 1958, the observation car was changed from the 2436 Summit to the 2436 Mooseheart.  In both 1957 and 1958, these cars were offered in two sets per year, hauled by either a low-end steamer or diesels.  Since I don't have any of those locomotives and thus can't recreate any of the four sets, for this True HD 1080p video, I've assigned the #601 Seaboard NW-2 diesel that dates from 1956 and which I've never before shown in a video.  Same era, same guts, same grinding sound, and same ozone from the AC motor that you unfortunately can't smell even in hi-def.
