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.

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!
