Planned for Q4 2024

Description

The Denver Rio Grande & Western had very few streamline sleepers.

The color scheme, known as ‘Grande Gold’ was introduced in 1949. In later years, a simplified single (black) stripe version was used.

This selection is for two fluted Pullman sleepers, the Glenwood Springs and the Colorado Springs in the four stripe scheme.

A limited production, these are classic versions of Rio Grande sleepers. Prototype Pullman sleepers used on the D&RGW had fluting below the windows and were smooth above the windows. Cars of this style could be a future project of ours, but these ‘Springs Series’ cars will be stand-ins until then.

We have chosen ‘Springs’ as it is in the character of how railroads usually named cars for geographical locations along the line. But being clear, these are not prototype cars, and we are sure you will enjoy them anyway!

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!

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!

I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.
