The lightweight train was constructed with welded stainless steel using Budd's patented process. The engine was an 8-cylinder Winton 201-A diesel, driving a generator; the lead truck was equipped with traction motors. It was fitted with air conditioning in all cars. No dining car was provided; instead, meals were prepared in a galley and served to passengers in trays that clipped to the back of the seat in front.
The railroad donated the trainset to the Edaville Railroad tourist/museum operation in Carver, Massachusetts. The train remained on static display there for about 40 years until it was moved in the early 1990s to Glen, New Hampshire after being purchased by the late Bob Morrell, former owner of Story Land.
In 1997, the train was moved to the Claremont Concord Railroad's shops in Claremont, New Hampshire for a complete restoration once purchased by the State of New Hampshire, which is ongoing. By 2004, the major structural restoration had been completed, and detailed restoration of components was proceeding. The eventual goal is to restore the train completely to running condition. The train was moved to Lincoln, New Hampshire, on August 10, 2005, to the Hobo Railroad where the mechanical restoration is taking place.
