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.

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.

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.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!
