RailSmith- SP GS Coach Fluted Fleet
VERY FEW REMAIN!
Coach 2425, 2431 & 2433
Pullman-Standard build a series of fifteen fluted coaches for the Southern Pacific in 1937. These cars were intended for long distance overnight service. All three of these coaches (road numbers) were rebuilt in 1953 for the Cascade for service between Oakland and Portland.
The scheme known as ‘General Service’, was silver with ‘Daylight Red’ stipe through the lettering board. It was adopted in 1958 after the very popular Sunset Limited paint scheme. Some cars had a lower red stripe which was applied to match the red strip placement on the Budd cars. High or low stripe, they were known as ‘general service’ and saw use all over the system.
There are three road numbers being produced at this time. This selection ‘General Service Fluted Coach Fleet’ is for all three coaches in this release and gets you the discount allowance.
