RS-GN BSB Dome Coach Single
Arriving Q2 of 2024
Budd Dome Coach #1335 in GN’s Big Sky Blue!
This is one of sixteen cars that were built by the Budd company for the Empire Builder. Added in 1955, there were usually three of these cars assigned to the Empire Builder. Occasionaly used on the Western Starr in the off season.
The GN called these ‘Great Dome Coaches’, not to be confused with the ‘Great Dome Lounge’ car which was the full Dome.
In 1967 the GN adopted this new paint scheme they called Big Sky Blue. This selection ‘GN BSB Dome Coach Single’ is for one car road numbers #1335. There is also a pair of Dome Coaches option in this release and they have different road numbers. So there are three total cars being produced at this time in this scheme. Be sure to not miss that pair of Great Dome Coaches!
These are prototype cars.
