RailSmith- ATSF Chair Pair

In stock



Shipping September 2024


Between 1946 and 1953, the Santa Fe Railway ordered 137 Chair Cars. These cars were added to trains like the Texas Chief, San Francisco Chief and the El Capitan allowing older cars to be retired from those trains. The Budd company supplied 45 of those cars, with the remaining 92 were built by Pullman.

Our two Santa Fe Chair Cars in this release are from those delivered from Pullman-Standard. Although none of the actual cars are 100% like our fluted Pullman Coach, we feel that the lack of Chair cars for this great railroad is sufficient reason to produce what we will call Classic versions for your enjoyment.

Car #3179 is a ‘Chair Club’ car and sports an antenna on the roof.  While road#3180 has no antenna.

These cars are all sliver, roof, trucks and under frame.

A reminder should be said, that there is only one car found like the Rd#3179. When these are gone, they are gone.

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.

Many thanks for your superb offerings and beautiful 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 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.

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!


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.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!
