RS – Golden State Diner ‘Golden Goblet’
Planned to arrive late summer 2023
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.
