RailSmith- SP Sleeper 9031
VERY Few Remain!
Southern Pacific Sleeper 9031.
This 10-6 sleeper was built by Pullman in 1950 for service on Southern Pacific’s ‘Cascade’ between Oakland and Seattle. Originally delivered in Two-Tone Gray (RailSmith future releases), this car and other ESPEE 10-6 Sleepers were later painted in this silver and red ‘General Service’ scheme and would see service on many other Southern Pacific trains such as the ‘City of San Francisco’, or the ‘Overland’. Southern Pacific had twenty-three of these sleepers.
What you see different from the Walthers release are: Road number, window trim & ESPEE lettering is now corrected to ESPEE Lettering Gray (versus silver that Walthers used).
This is a Prototype car.
