Description

Three Coaches – City of Miami

Florida East Coast, Atlantic Coast Line and the Central of Georgia all contributed coaches to the City of Miami. All are built by Pullman-Standard and were decorated in the chocolate and orange scheme with ‘City of Miami’ in the lettering board. The car owner initials were in black centered above the truck by the door.  All three of these coaches were sold to Amtrak in 1971.

The Illinois Central insisted that cars in their train from other owners were painted in this scheme known as  the ‘Panama’ scheme.  Besides the ACL, FEC and CoGa, other lines that had cars painted in this scheme were: CNW, NYC, NP, PRR, UP and DL&W. But these were usually cars leased for the busy winter season. All were painted in the chocolate and orange, with rare exception.

The City of Miami was an all streamline consist early on. Something that was a cut above the competition, (Penny’s Southwind).

There are three road numbers being produced at this time. This selection ‘City of Miami Coach Fleet 1’ is for all three coaches in this release and gets you the discount allowance and discounted shipping for the time being and to accommodate those that have ordered other cars arriving in this same batch.

Atlantic Coast Line #247, Central of Georgia #663 and Florida East Coast ‘Canal Point’.

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

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.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.

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!
