‘Blue Horizon’ &  ‘Western View’ – Wabash Sleeper Pair

Built by American Car & Foundry and delivered in 1950, Blue Horizon was assigned the Chicago-San Antonio connection on The Texas Special in 1956. Maybe other times as well, but we have documentation of this for sure.

Wabash ordered 10 cars from AC&F in this floor plan with 16 rooms. Four were ‘Western’ series and six had the prefix  ‘Blue’. In this time period both cars in this release have PULLMAN in the lettering board.

All the Western Series cars were delivered in UP’s yellow & gray. Western View was one of the four Western Series cars owned by Wabash and was later painted the Wabash blue scheme in the late 50’s when it was reassigned. The TRRA shows documentation that this car was then assigned to the Frisco’s Meteor, St. Louis to Oklahoma City. See photo here of  the Western View.

The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis, is a great resource for this information and I have relied heavily on their publication on The Texas Special as well as their issue covering Frisco’s Meteor.

RailSmith has tooled new parts and used existing ‘Pullman’ parts to create this never-before-in-N-Scale sleeper! So we call this a Classic version of these Wabash cars and we know you will love them!

This selection is for both Wabash cars offered at this time and is discounted price for the pair.

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


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!


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.


The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.

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

Dan & Nina D.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.

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 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.
