Description

Louisville & Nashville railroad sleeper ‘KENTUCKY RIVER‘.

Delivered by Pullman in 1949, this sleeper was one of 3 the L&N ordered that was built to plan 4140, (our RailSmith car) a ten roomette-six bedroom sleeper.  This class configuration of sleeper for the L&N were all given the “River” names.

These cars were built to the Pennsy standards for through service to New York on the Pan-American and PRR’s Cincinnati Limited. Originally painted tuscan red, they later wore Louisville & Nashville’s blue and gold.

Later in the 1960’s, this car was also used on Pennsy’s SOUTH WIND, service from Chicago to Miami.

This is a Prototype model. Samples are here and we can’t wait for you to see them!
