In stock

Sleeper Blue Rapids

In 1950 PRR took delivery of fourteen 10/6 Sleepers. Most were painted in Missouri Pacific’s Eagle scheme. Two were painted for the ‘Overland Route’ for transcontinental service. Delivered in the Two-Tone-Gray and later were painted in PRR’s Tuscan. According to the PRRT&HS, the Blue Rapids was assigned to the New York to San Francisco carried on PRR’s Admiral and then to the San Francisco Overland.

Blue Rapids was built by American Car & Foundry and we will call this a Classic version of this car. Our version will include the three inch full skirts that you see in this builders photo of the car!
