Description

‘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.

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 have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

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! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

That car is about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in N scale!  Excellent work!

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

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.

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

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.
