Planned for June 2024


Santa Fe’s Fluted Diner ‘1488’

This car, #1488 was a single car order built by Pullman and delivered in 1940.

The SFR&MS book on Dining & Beverage Service Cars has the complete story and great photos.

Santa Fe had many diners from Budd and Pullman, none served a Ribeye Steak as good as this RailSmith Pullman Diner, with legendary Fred Harvey Service!

This is a Classic model and the photo here shows this car on the Texas Chief with skirts, as our model will have.

Lowell, I received my Great Locomotive Chase set today. “THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.” Keep up the good work.


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

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!
