AT&SF 6-6-4 SLEEPER
When lightweight cars came to the Pullman fleet in the early 1940s, their smooth sides lent themselves to classy, colorful paint schemes. Corrugated stainless-steel sides, later added to match the look (and acknowledge the competition) of Budd's stainless-steel cars, created a variety of cars that ran on premier passenger trains.
Walthers Pullman-Standard passengers bring this variety to HO Scale passenger trains with models matching the performance and detailing or our popular Budd passenger cars. Walthers Pullman-Standard cars feature as many as four body styles; smooth or fluted sides, with or without skirting as appropriate for each roadname. They ride on GSC 41-HR trucks with diecast sideframes and blackened-metal wheelsets. Other features include flush-fitting windows, full interiors, working diaphragms, magnetic knuckle couplers and car number and name decals. The car bodies have molded-in drill starter points that make installing the supplied wire grab irons easier. All cars, unless noted, have built-in provisions for the Walthers Passenger Car Interior Lighting Kit 933-1049, $10.98 (sold separately).
Assigned to flagship trains like the "Golden State Limited" and UPs "City" streamliners, 6-6-4 Sleepers operated coast-to-coast on a variety of railroads. Each had six open compartments, six roomettes and four double bedroomsperfect for long-distance travelers.
PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - SMALL PARTS! NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3.
