lionel o gauge union pacific city of denver sets introduced in 1936 as the lionel union pacific overland the no 299w streamliner was advertised as an “authentic model of the union pacific railroad’s new overland express that races at a top clip from denver to the coast.” by the following year the set was more accurately identified as the chicago–denver city of denver with a big front grille and long hood reminiscent of automobiles of the period lionel’s power car was actually a pretty accurate model of the city’s lead locomotives the rest of the 299w’s articulated consist however was borrowed from lionel’s flying yankee and bore little resemblance to the prototype lionel’s city was cataloged from 1936 when the actual train debuted until 1939 our model recreates the later version of lionel’s city of denver as delivered in the up’s armour yellow and leaf brown livery with all-yellow vestibules connecting the cars
