Description

Presenting another sleeper for the Florida East Coast, the Argentina!

The FEC ordered seven of these sleepers from Pullman-Standard. Delivered in late 1949 in the same production lot as cars for ACL, PRR, RF&P, all of which were used on trains such as The Florida Special and the Atlantic Coast Line’s Champions, with the Argentina being assigned to the Royal Palm at one time.

Delivered in all stainless steel, this car were never changed from this scheme of all silver with black lettering.

This link is for the single car, Argentina.  There are two sleepers in this new release. See  ‘Florida East Coast- Sleeper Pair #2’ is for discount on the two sleepers. These prototype cars have never before been produced in N Scale.

Sleepers like these were also assigned as needed on the many trains that the Florida East Coast were a part of. Trains like: The Southwind, Florida Special, The Champions, Kansas City Florida Special and the Royal Palm to name a few.

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.
