RailSmith- F.E.C. Sleepers Pair #1
Arrived & shipping NOW, December 27-30 2021.
Presenting sleepers for the Florida East Coast, the Oriente & the Havana!
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, these cars were never changed from this scheme of all silver with black lettering.
There are two road names in this run, Oriente and Havana. This selection ‘Florida East Coast- Sleeper Pair’ 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.
