RSM- Big Sky Blue GN Dome Coach Pair

In stock



Arriving Q4 of 2024


Budd Dome Coaches #1331 & #1333 in GN’s Big Sky Blue!

These are two 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 ‘Big Sky Blue GN Dome Coach Pair’ is for two cars road numbers #1331 and #1333. There is also a single car option in this release and it has a different road number!  So there are three total cars being produced at this time in this scheme. Be sure to not miss that single car!

These are prototype cars!

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!

Lowell, I received my Great Locomotive Chase set today. “THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.” Keep up the good work.


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 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.
