RS – Golden State Diner ‘Golden Goblet’

In stock



Update- Release expected June 2024


Presenting the fluted diner, or in this case, a ‘Coffee Shop-Lounge’ for the Golden State!

When the Golden State debuted in 1948, besides the full dining car, there was also a mid-train ‘Coffee Shop-Lounge’. This car, Golden Goblet, was one of three Rock Island cars built to this same floor plan.

Our car like the prototype, will have full shirting and comes with a super fine antenna!

The Southern Pacific and Rock Island joined together for this train. The cars painted for the Golden State were this sharp Daylight Red and Silver scheme. But we found it interesting that the Rock Island used their own lettering style on this car and not the other Southern Pacific’s font style.

This is a Classic version of this car, and our second release for the 1947 Golden State!

Don’t miss the chance to ‘Get The Fluted Feast #2’ by purchasing the entire fleet of five fluted diners being released at the same time! Follow this link to find the set of five, discounted for a short while.

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.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.

Jim and Jo Ann K.

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

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.
