RailSmith- ATSF Chair Pair

In stock



Shipping Q1, 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.

Charlie S.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.


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.

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!

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

Dan & Nina D.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.


Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!


The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.  


As a retiree of the Walt Disney Company I look forward to upcoming releases of the Disney Family Museum and Disneyland series.  Keep up the excellent work!


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!
