Pullman Park Series #4 Pennsylvania ‘Independence’
Arriving May 2018
Produced by Micro-Trains, this heavyweight sleeper is decorated in the Shadowline paint scheme that was applied to older cars allowing them to blend into a streamline passenger consist. There are two road names available. (See also the ‘Independence’ Pennsy car.)
This “Shadowlining” when used on smooth sided cars, created the illusion of fluting. These cars were thus painted in the spring of 1953 to match the Budd cars of ‘The Congressional’ and ‘The Senator’ passenger trains, and used as traffic surges dictated.
