RS-Empire Builder Dome Coach Single

In stock



Arriving Q2 of 2024


Budd Dome Coach #1332. (the only SP&S passenger car that had four digit numbers.)

This is the only Budd Dome Coach owned by the SP&S built for the Empire Builder service in 1955.  One of sixteen Dome Coach cars that was built by the Budd company for the Empire Builder and  added in 1955. Three cars in this lot were owned by the CB&Q.  Noted that these cars have ownership markings in the upper corners of the car, SP&S in this case.  Typically there were three of these Dome Coaches assigned to the Empire Builder. Occasionally a dome coach was 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.

This selection ‘GN’s Empire Builder Great Dome Coach Single’ is for one car road numbers #1332. 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.

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

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.

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!

That car is about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in N scale!  Excellent work!


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.  


Thanks for all the great trains – it’s nice to have such wonderful rolling stock on the layout.
