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.

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

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.

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

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

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.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.

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!!!
