Description

TWO Sleepers – Illinois Central

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 these 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 two 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 Pair’ is for both sleepers in this release and gets you the discount allowance and discounted shipping for the time being.

Remember, if you order the City of Miami coaches which are IN STOCK, along with these newly announced sleepers in the same order, the entire order ships together when the sleepers arrive. So please order separately if you wish to get the City of Miami Coaches now.

These are Classic versions of these named cars.

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

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

D.K.

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.

Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!

Linda and Pete B.

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!
