Ferdinand Magellan: Body Style A Smashing Success!
The Ferdinand Magellan is the first in this line with the brand new body style which Micro Trains made just for Lowell Smith Signature Series.
The original Ferdinand Magellan railcar was built in 1929 by the Pullman Company as a private car. It was one of six similar cars constructed in two batches. They were named after famous explorers.
After the United States entered World War II, it was suggested by Secret Service agent Mike Reilly and White House Press Secretary Stephen Early that President Franklin D. Roosevelt needed a specially equipped and armored car rather than using standard equipment provided by the Pullman Company. The Ferdinand Magellan was selected, and the Pullman Company rebuilt the car. The Ferdinand Magellan became the first passenger railcar built for a President since the War Department had built a special car for the use of Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
