Description

Great Northern Coach 1209.

Built by ACF in 1951 for the Empire Builder. This car, 1209, is lettered ‘Empire Builder’. Only one car like this was assigned to each EB consist. This coach was generally used for short distance coach travelers.  The other three coaches in the consist were called ‘Day-Nite’ coaches. New tooling for that version is coming late 2019!

What you see different from the Walthers release are: Road number, window trim & Empire Builder lettering. This is the only chair car like this to be produced for the Empire Builder as the EB carried only ONE (short distance ‘Day coach’) coach like this.

This is a Classic version of this car. Difference being 64 seats versus 60 seats and builder.

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.

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.

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!

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…
