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!

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

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.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!


I really am enjoying what you are producing, Lowell! Thanks for doing it. Jerry
