Description

Sleeper SNAKE RIVER

Sixteen cars in this class were built by Pullman-Standard for Empire Builder service in 1951. These cars will not have skirts.

The Great Northern typically ran five sleepers on the Empire Builder in this era. Three of these ‘River’ series sleepers and two (or three) of the ‘Pass’ series sleepers. All depending on the seasonal need.

This selection ‘GN’s Empire Builder  SNAKE RIVER Duplex Sleeper’. This car is also one of the ‘Fleet’, but offered as single should for some strange reason you would not want all three of these new beauties.

The Snake River was owned by the Spokane Portland & Seattle and was one of their contributions for this 1951 train. Those ownership initials are shown in the upper corners of the lettering board.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.

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.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.

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…
