RSM- Big Sky Blue GN Dome Coach Pair

In stock



Arriving Q2 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!

The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.

These are indeed miniature masterpieces.
