Description

Two Prototype Vista Dome Sleepers  – North Coast Limited

Budd DOME SLEEPERS #309 & #310 – Loewy Scheme

Built in 1954 by Budd, these cars were part of a ten car order, with one more car later built and delivered in 1957. Two of these were owned by the CB&Q and one, the #306 was owned by the SP&S. The rest were owned by the NP.

The North Coast Limited usually carried four domes, two were these famous Dome Sleepers and two were the Dome Coaches.

These cars were decorated in the striking scheme created by the designer Raymond Loewy. Known as the Loewy Scheme, this two-tone green made for a stunning train consist.

Although not always the case, one of these cars was typically assigned Chicago to Seattle and the other Chicago to Portland connections. That Portland car along with a Sleeper bound for Portland were transferred to the SP&S connecting train in Pasco Washington.

We are so very excited to bring you this Prototype car, that you never thought would be made in N Scale. but wait, this car has never been made in HO! (well maybe in brass but that doesn’t count 😉

There are two road numbers being produced at this time, for the 1954 NCL consist.

Happy Rails, on the Mainstreet of the Northwest!

These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.

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…

Jeff B.

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

Bill S.

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

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.

The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.

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.
