Description

Presenting the SP observation #9040  in yellow & gray for the City of San Francisco!

Southern Pacific took five of their Plan 4140 sleepers and converted them to blunt-end cars to give the City of San Francisco a ‘finished end look’ for that train. Unlike the four Cascade and Golden State Obs cars that were built at Pullman, the five COSF cars were rebuilt in the SP shops. The end look all being the same.

This car #9040, was one of those five cars that served most of its life on the COSF.    We have relied on the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society for all of our information. Actual photo here of 9040 on the City of San Francisco.

This car has the COSF drumhead in place. (it does not lite).

RailSmith Blunt End Observation features: accurate newly tooled end detail including operating rear light, photo etched door safety bar, period and car accurate drumhead (not lit), as well as Micro-Trains True Scale Coupler on the rear of the car.

If you would like all five of the SP OBS cars being released at this time, there is a special ‘Fleet Offer SPOH’  for ‘SP Observation Heaven’. 

Production costs seem to be volatile these days and we expect that the retail price of these cars will increase at or before delivery, so please reserve your car today for your best pricing.

This is a Prototype car, and will only be produced one time.

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

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.

As a retiree of the Walt Disney Company I look forward to upcoming releases of the Disney Family Museum and Disneyland series.  Keep up the excellent work!

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!
