1947 NCL Chief Red Thunder
Sleeper – 1947 North Coast Limited
Heavy-weight Sleeper Chief Red Thunder
Purchased from the Pullman Company, the Northern Pacific had 25 cars that were 10-1-1 room configuration that were all named after ‘Chiefs’. These heavy-weight cars were used along with the brand new light weight cars for the streamlined North Coast Limited.
The 1947 NCL was painted in what the NP called the ‘Streamliner’ scheme. More recently modelers and rail fans have called it the ‘Pine Tree’ scheme.
This car is being produced by Micro-Trains exclusively for us, using their heavyweight sleeper 141 Series sleeper, and is appropriately a 10-1 room format as the NP’s Chief series sleepers were.
Just one road name is being produced at this time. Be sure to check out the consist chart for our 1947 North Coast Limited.
Don’t miss the limited run F units for this train!
Because of production delays at Micro-Trains, the exact release date is not certain, but should be close to the end of 2021 or early 2022.
