UPDATE-  Shipped October 13, 2023



Coach Pair – Illinois Central

The Illinois Central had a large fleet of coaches used on most all of their trains. From the book Monarch’s of Mid-America, we see 35 cars like ours that were built between 1940-1949, all by Pullman-Standard.

Consists for the City of Miami show between 6+ coaches like this, owned by the I.C. as well as the three coaches we have already released that were owned by the ACL, CoG and FEC.

There are two road numbers being produced at this time, 2627 & 2636. This selection ‘Illinois Central Coach Pair’ is for both coaches in this release.

If you don’t care about road numbers and want to build the City of New Orleans, then you’d need at least three, or more pairs of these beauties.

I got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.


Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.


Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K.
