Description

Presenting sleepers for the Florida East Coast,  Argentina & Columbia!

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, these cars were never changed from this scheme of all silver with black lettering.

There are two road names in this run, Argentina and Columbia.  This selection ‘Florida East Coast- Sleeper Pair #2’ is for 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.

This is a Prototype car, with the photo here of a sleeper from the earlier run.

This selection is for both sleepers shown here and allows a shipping discount if selected versus the single cars of the same names.

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!

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.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!

Joe W.

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

Thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you do for the modeling community. I can honestly say that my enjoyment of the hobby has benefited greatly because of you.
