RailSmith- ATSF Chair Pair

In stock



Shipping Q4, 2023


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.

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.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.


Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.


I am speechless!  The AFT Showcase car is everything I hoped it would be; and more.

I received my #99 business card in the mail today. It looks superb. Thank you for another wonderful job. You are really filling a niche.

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!


These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash 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!
