The “Gold Bonnet” was part of a promotional train painted up for General Electric. In February of 1960, one PA along with a baggage car and three lounge cars were painted gold for GEs "Golden Values" promotion campaign in Southern California. The train ran between Los Angeles, Pasadena, San Bernardino, Fullerton and San Diego. Then the locomotive and the four cars were returned to their normal paint schemes.

I don't see anywhere on AZL Direct where to purchase this?
Still not seeing these on AZL Direct? They sold out, so they won't even show them on the site?!
Items that sell out same day of release won't go to AZL direct - AZL direct is a sales website ... if it sells out in initial offers to dealers, no need for it to go onto a sales website that can't sell any.
