Description

Illinois Central – Sleeper Clarksdale

The I.C. had a total of 23 sleepers with ten roomettes and six bedrooms, all build by the Pullman-Standard Company.

Sleepers on the IC were given names based on the type of accommodations they had. Ten-Six sleepers were all given names that started with a ‘C’. Cars that were configured with 11 Double Bedrooms, the names started with “B’.  Sleepers with 22 roomettes names began with ‘F’, and so forth.

We have chosen two ten-six road names, not because they were assigned to the City of Miami, but rather because they WERE NOT! These two cars were assigned for ‘protection’. The term railroads use for holding a car in reserve, ‘just in case’. So these cars could be seen on ANY Illinois Central train, anytime, including the City of Miami!

There are two road names being produced at this time. This selection ‘I.C. Sleeper Clarksdale’ is for one sleeper. This is the same sleeper offered in the ‘pair’. When the pair is sold out, only this single will be available.

Next in our IC train is the baggage car, so don’t miss that!  And you won’t believe what is after that!!

This is a Classic version of this car.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.

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.

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.

These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

That car is about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in N scale!  Excellent work!

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