Description

Coach 516 – North Coast Limited

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

When delivered, it was painted in what has been called the ‘Pine Tree’ scheme. It was also delivered with skirts which were later removed. In 1953 it was 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 three road numbers being produced at this time.

See the North Coast Limited Coach Fleet #1,  for special pricing on all three coaches!

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.

Thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you do for the modeling community. I can honestly say that my enjoyment of the hobby has benefited greatly because of you.

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

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

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

Dan & Nina D.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.
