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.

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.

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

I am speechless!  The AFT Showcase car is everything I hoped it would be; and more.

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.
