Description

 

City of Miami  ‘ACL 247’

Florida East Coast, Atlantic Coast Line and the Central of Georgia all contributed coaches to the City of Miami. All are built by Pullman-Standard and were decorated in the chocolate and orange scheme with ‘City of Miami’ in the lettering board. The car owner initials were in black centered above the truck by the door.  All three of these coaches were sold to Amtrak in 1971.

The Illinois Central insisted that cars in their train from other owners were painted in this scheme known as ‘Panama’.  Besides the ACL, FEC and CoGa, other lines that had cars painted in this scheme were: CNW, NYC, NP, PRR, UP and DL&W. But these were usually cars leased for the busy winter season. All were painted in the chocolate and orange with rare exception.

The City of Miami was an all streamline consist early on. Something that was a cut above the competition, (Penny’s Southwind).

There are three road numbers being produced at this time.

See the City of Miami  Coach Fleet 1 for special pricing on all three coaches!

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

You are in my book one of the very best.
