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.

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!


Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

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.

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.


AFT is a real dream come true for me. Thanks for all your hard work!

I received my #99 business card in the mail today. It looks superb. Thank you for another wonderful job. You are really filling a niche.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.
