RailSmith- NP ‘Cascade’ Sleeper 364
First production run expected November.
Northern Pacific Sleeper 364.
This 10-6 sleeper car was built by Pullman in 1950 for service on Southern Pacific’s Cascade between Oakland and Seattle. NP had two of these cars as their contribution to this Southern Pacific train. First delivered in the Two-Tone Gray scheme, then changing to the General Service red & silver, the car carried the ‘Northern Pacific’ name on it’s lettering board and served in this scheme on the Cascade until 1966.
This car would be placed on a ‘Coast Pool Train’ in Portland for its run up to Seattle. Then returning in same fashion back to Portland to be put onto the Cascade’s run south to Oakland.
