SCFRE8A Super Chief 8 Amp Simplex Radio Equipped

This product has been replaced by the Super Chief Xtra 8 Amp Duplex Radio Equipped for Europe (SCFXD8CE) and is no longer available. Click here to view the SCFXD8CE.

The Super Chief 8 Amp (Radio Equipped) starter set contained a DCS200 command station, a DT400R throttle, a UR91 Radio Receiver, and a LT1 LocoNet tester.

This Starter Set was equipped with Simplex Radio.  Simplex Radio is no longer offered in Starter Sets after Super Chief Series. Super Chief Xtra sets are offered with Duplex Radio.

The photo is of a 5 amp Super Chief Radio Equipped.  The 5 amp set contains a DCS100 as shown.  The 8 amp set contains a DCS200 command station which is similar in appearance to the DCS100.
