This production run is arriving October 2021.
Sleeper ‘Buffalo Rapids‘
One of three ten-six sleepers that the Pennsylvania Railroad assigned to transcontinental service. Delivered in the Two-Tone-Gray and later were painted in UP’s yellow and gray. The Buffalo Rapids was assigned to the New York to San Francisco trains such as the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Overland.
In the Four Ways West book ‘Overland Route Passenger Trains’ we also see the Buffalo Rapids in a consist of the City of Los Angeles in 1956 (page 88).
According to the PRRT&HS book PRR Lettering Guide page 84: “During its last year of operation, the New York to San Francisco sleeper was carried by the Broadway Limited.”
Buffalo Rapids was built by American Car & Foundry and we will call this a Classic version of this car.
