Description

This selection is for two FRISCO sleepers.

‘Osage River’ & ‘James River’

These sleepers were built by Pullman in 1947-48 specifically for the Meteor. The METEOR ran from St. Louis to Oklahoma City and had connecting cars to New York City (Pennsy) and Washington DC (Wabash), and Chicago (GM&O), and to Jersey City (B&O).

The consist was as follows:  One RPO Baggage, often one or two heavyweight baggage (as needed), three or four Chair Cars,  a Dormitory Chair Car, one Dining Car, Coach Buffet Lounge, five  Sleepers, one Buffet Lounge Observation Car.  This was pulled by two E-7 locomotives in the bright red scheme.

The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis, is a great resource for this information and I have relied heavily on their publication on the Meteor. They also show consists in the 1950’s and 60’s with more head-end baggage and heavyweight Pullman Sleepers in the consists.

Another great train story!

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K.
