RailSmith- SP Coach #2380
This production run is arriving February 2021
Southern Pacific ‘Chair Car’ #2380
Built in 1949 by Pullman-Standard, this car number 2380 was one of two ‘chair cars’ ordered by the Southern Pacific to be assigned to The City of San Francisco.
(Some railroads used the word ‘Chair Car’ and others used the word ‘Coach’, but all mean the same.)
When delivered, it was given the Armor Yellow and Harbor Mist Gray scheme that Union Pacific insisted be used on their ‘City’ trains. It was also delivered with skirts which were later removed.
More can be read about these cars in the book Union Pacific’s Streamliners by Kratville and also in the Pullman Standard Library Volume 14.
This is a Classic version of these cars and has skirts.
There is one SP road number being produced at this time.
See the City of San Francisco Coach Fleet 2, for special pricing on both the SP & UP coaches!
