Did you miss the limited run F units for this train?  Not to worry, as we are planning another run of F units in this scheme. So it is not too late to get on board this 1947 NCL!  At the next opportunity, we plan to produce an A-B-A run of F-7’s  for this train. We will let you know as soon as we have a production window!


Single Sleeper – 1947 North Coast Limited Sleepers: Missoula- Streamliner (Pine Tree) Scheme

This selection is for a single car which is also included in the ‘FLEET #1’. See that selection for cost effect savings for all three cars being released.


Built in 1947 by Pullman-Standard, this car were part of an eighteen car order, and the first cars for the streamlined North Coast Limited.

This is Pullman-Standard floor plan 4119. Designated 8-6-3-1, as eight duplex roomettes, six roomettes, three double bedrooms and one compartment. All of these cars were named for towns along the NP route.

When delivered, they were painted in what the NP called the ‘Streamliner’ scheme. More recently modelers and rail fans have called it the ‘Pine Tree’ scheme. They were also delivered with skirts, which our models accurately have.

This is a Prototype car and to the era of this paint scheme, has skirts. See a nice photo in this gallery of this sleeper in front of the station.

There are three road names being produced at this time.

I just wanted you to know my O gauge Hood River Pears car came yesterday in perfect condition. This car is just beautiful I can’t wait for the next one to come out. Keep up the good work.


What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.


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.
