N SCALE!  Great Northern’s Diner Lake McDonald

This dining car was one of six built by Pullman-Standard in 1947 for service on the new ‘Streamlined Empire Builder’. All of these cars are named for lakes along the Great Northern’s route.

In 1951, new diners built by American Car & Foundry were delivered for use on the Empire Builder and the 1947 Pullman-Standard built cars were assigned to the secondary trains such as the newest train named the Western Star. In this era, the lettering board showed ‘Great Northern’. This N Scale model is this version and has no skirts.

This is a Prototype car.

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.

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…

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!

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.
