Petticoat Junction is a ground breaking American situation comedy that originally aired on the CBS Network from September 1963 to April 1970. Recognizing the then huge popularity of the TV show, in 1966/1967 Tyco produced four slightly different Petticoat Junction C&FW Railroad train sets all featuring the show’s famous “Hooterville Cannonball” locomotive. (What the C&FW designation actually stood for remains shrouded in mystery. Even Paul Henning, creator of the show, doesn't remember the inspiration behind them.) Each of the four train sets included a beautiful 4-6-0 Dixie Bell Locomotive, an Overton Combine Car and two Overton Passenger Coaches. The sets were offered both with and without track and power supply.
Though the original Tyco train sets are now 50 years old and extremely rare we were able to find the Locomotive, Combine and two Passenger Coaches all in pristine mint condition. Of course, for our MRRHQ Custom Limited Edition Train Sets, mint original condition is just the beginning. With a slew of impressive rolling stock upgrades and never-before-offered model replicas of Petticoat Junction's signature Shady Rest Hotel and Water Tower, our MRRHQ Custom HO Scale Heirloom Petticoat Junction Train & Structure Set is one of the finest and most unique model train sets ever produced. Only from the modelers at MRRHQ!
