Two Prototype Sleepers  – North Coast Limited

Sleepers #350 & #352 – Loewy Scheme

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  the ‘Streamliner’ scheme,  also more recently called the ‘Pine Tree’ scheme. They were also delivered with skirts which were later removed. In 1953 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.

With two of these cars assigned to the 1954 NCL, many of these sleepers also saw service on trains like the Mainstreeter,  and the Alaskan, as well as the Spokane Portland & Seattle Streamliner (Trains 1 & 2).

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, for the 1954 NCL consist

This offer is for the North Coast Limited Duplex Sleeper Pair, TWO cars.
