Life-Like joined in the craze for U.S. Bicentennial model trains with a number of releases, including this series of HO-scale rolling stock offerings.
Life-Like’s GP38-2 debuts in 1975 and marks the first EMD “Dash 2” diesel to arrive in ready-to-run plastic model form.
Among the original HO-scale diesel locomotive offerings from Life-Like in 1970 was this F7 offering.
This long-serving HO train set included Life-Like’s F7A and F7B diesels and came in a number road names.

C&NW was not the most common road name for a train set, but this offering is certainly typical of what made up a common set in the 1970s.
Featuring a 4-6-0 steam locomotive, the High Iron was among early 1970s Life-Like train set offerings.
Possibly the premiere train set offering in Life-Like’s original catalog of HO-scale electric trains was its Big Hook release.
An early 1970s Life-Like train set included veteran Varney toolings.
