GN Fluted Coach #1072 in Big Sky Blue.

Built by Pullman-Standard in 1948 for the Frisco, this car was used on the Texas Special. Four of these coaches were purchased from the Frisco by the GN in February 1966 and decorated in the new Big Sky Blue scheme in 1967.

These cars were used on the Badger, the Gopher and the International, and the Portland to Seattle ‘Pool Trains’ as well as the Western Star.

When GN announced the new Sky blue scheme, it was the beginning of what became the ‘Rainbow Era’. The coach we are releasing played an obvious role in that title.

This is a classic version of this coach.

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!
