Description

Two Coaches – North Coast Limited

Coaches #510 & #511 – Loewy Scheme  This is our second release of these cars, with two new road numbers of course. (Three cars were issued in 2020.)

Built in 1947 by Pullman-Standard, these cars were part of an eighteen car order, the first cars for the streamlined North Coast Limited.

When delivered, they were painted in what has been called the ‘Pine Tree’ scheme. the NP actually called it the ‘Streamliner’ scheme.  They were also delivered with skirts which were later removed. In 1954 they were given the striking scheme created by the designer Raymond Loewy. Known as the Loewy Scheme, this two-tone green made for a stunning train consist.

Many of these coaches saw service on trains like the Mainstreeter, the Alaskan and the Portland to Seattle ‘Pool Trains’.

This is a Prototype car and to the era of this paint scheme, has no skirts.

There are two road numbers being produced at this time. Photo is from prior run.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

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