RS – Rio Grande Diner ‘ROYAL GORGE’

In stock




Planned for Q4 2023


The DRG&W had 3  Buffet-Lounge cars in this series, all build by Pullman and were delivered to the DRG&W in 1950. Two of these cars went to the PRR and survived to Amtrak. The third was the car Castle Gate that went to the D&H.

The scheme known as ‘Grande Gold’ was introduced in 1949 when the Prospector and Royal Gorge trains were (mostly) streamlined.  This release is for the  car named Royal Gorge in this original as delivered four stripe scheme.

On the DRG&W, both the Diner and the Buffet-Lounges were unusual floor plans. As such we have selected the Buffet Lounge as the windows are closest to our new fluted diner.  As on the prototype, our classic version of this beautiful car has full skirts.

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 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.


Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

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!
