RS – Golden State Diner ‘Golden Goblet’

In stock



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.

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

Thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you do for the modeling community. I can honestly say that my enjoyment of the hobby has benefited greatly because of you.


Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.


Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

Love your 3-rail O Scale Atlas Woodside Reefer series. Looking forward to future issues.


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 just wanted you to know my O gauge Hood River Pears car came yesterday in perfect condition. This car is just beautiful I can’t wait for the next one to come out. Keep up the good work.
