RailSmith- SP Golden State Coach Pair

Out of stock



Arriving 2nd Quarter 2023


Presenting  coaches for the Golden State!

The Southern Pacific, received a fleet of 16  ‘Chair Cars’  from Pullman-Standard.  (Remember that the Southern Pacific used the term ‘Chair Cars’, where other railroads used the term ‘coach’. They are the same.) These coaches were used all over the SP system and in 1947, four were painted for the Golden State in this sharp Daylight Red and Silver scheme.

We are releasing two of those four cars at this time, the Golden Sand and Golden Ore. Both of these cars were later reassigned and replaced by Budd Chair Cars. Interestingly, these two names were also applied to those Budd cars.

There are two road names in this run, Golden Sand and Golden Ore.  This selection ‘SP golden State Coach Pair’ is for two coaches. These cars have never been produced in N Scale before.

These are Classic versions of these cars, and our first releases of the 1947 Golden State!

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!


These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.


Thank you ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!
