RailSmith- GN BSB Duplex Sleeper Fleet

In stock






New pre-production photo here. The skirts will be gray as they should be on the final production run.

PLEASE READ THIS!  The MOUSE RIVER car and SKAGIT RIVER car, ARE BEING CHANGED. This fleet will now be the three cars shown in the title.  Read about this updated (change) in our most recent blog, link here.

These are three of sixteen cars that were built by Pullman-Standard for Empire Builder service in 1951.    The Big Sky Blue scheme was first applied in 1967.

This is our second release as we begin to build the 1967 Empire Builder. The GN typically ran five sleepers on the Empire Builder. Three of these ‘River’ series sleepers and two (or three) of the ‘Pass’ series sleepers. All depending on the seasonal need.

Of special note about the color:  The color will closely match the BSB we used on our RailSmith coaches as well as the Executive Line Series GN-BSB produced a few years ago at MT. So yes, you will love these classic cars!!

This selection ‘GN BSB Duplex Sleeper Fleet’ is for one each of the three cars produced for discount allowance.

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!


Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

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!


Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!


“You have received many compliments when I have run my RailSmith cars with my friends.”
