RSM- Rock Island Fluted Diner ‘Golden Banquet’

In stock



Shipping January 2023


Finally a Diner for the Rock Island!

Built by Pullman-Standard in 1948, this fluted diner was one of four in this lot delivered to the Rock Island, for the Golden State train. Later use finds it as in this photo with Rock Island in the lettering board.

We are excited to offer this car that has never been produced in N Scale before. Like the other Rock Island cars we have produced, this car will not have full skirts. This all silver car was as it appeared after the red & silver Golden State scheme was retired.

This is a classic car for the Rock Island and will come complete with the super fine RailSmith antenna!

Wanting more Rock Island? Okay you talked us into it. More cars are coming!

Don’t miss the chance to ‘Get The Fluted Feast’ 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.

“You have received many compliments when I have run my RailSmith cars with my friends.”

R. LeBrun

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.

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.


I really am enjoying what you are producing, Lowell! Thanks for doing it. Jerry

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 ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!

Jeff B.

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

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.

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.

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!
