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.

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

Thank you ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

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.
