RS – Rio Grande Diner ‘ROYAL GORGE’

In stock




Update- Release expected June 2024


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.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!

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.

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!

I want to be like you when I grow up!

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.


I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.
