RailSmith- F.E.C. Sleeper ‘BAHAMIAN’
UPDATE This limited run is shipping late March 2023!
Presenting another sleeper for the Florida East Coast, the Bahamian!
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.
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, Bahamian. This prototype car has 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.
