RailSmith-SP COSF OBS #9040
This production run is planned to ship December 2, 2022.
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.
