The Tourist cars were built by Pullman in 1889 for service on the D&RG. Less opulent than the Palace cars, they had less trim and form. Several of these cars lived on as coaches and MOW cars on the C&S and D&RGW. The #470 was masterfully rebuilt by the CATS. A wonderful example of 19th c, craftsmanship.
Each kit comprises of precision laser cut wood, precision sawn cut wood, brass and nickel silver etchings, 3D printed ABS, injected plastic components and full lettering and glazing. The correct 6' wheelbase trucks are available separately. The design of the kit is such that should you want to add a detailed interior, you can very easily. The precision of the components and innovative design ensures a pleasurable build.
A thank you to all who pre-order. This is a huge help to me as it facilitates accurate planning. These kits are a labor of love but still a lot of work to produce. Thanks!
