Pullman built five plan 73A cars in 1880 and assigned them to the Utah & Northern, names Advance, Argo, Rambler, Progress and Security. When the U&N was standard gauged, the cars were returned to Pullman, who rebuilt them as coaches. Argo and Progress were sold to a Mexican narrow gauge, while Advance, Rambler and Security were sold to the UPD&G in 1892, numbered as coaches 174, 178 and 175 respectively. This is the only known photo of a plan 73A U&N sleeper as a coach on the UPD&G:
In 1899 the three cars were passed on to the new C&S, renumbered 174, 178 and 175 respectively. Both numbers 174 and 175 were destroyed by fire in Denver in 1906. Surviving 178, former Rambler, was rebuilt into one of the RPO-coaches in 1906, renumbered C&S 42
This kit comprises fine laser cut woods, etched nickel silver and brass hardware, injected plastic hardware, 3D printed ABS hardware, complete accurate dulux lettering (UPD&G, U&N, and C&S), and window glazing. These kits showcase a revolutionary design concept that allows for quick and easy roof construction with virtually no filling and sanding while yielding perfect curves every time. These cars are designed to allow the builder to add a fully detailed interior that includes the area immediately under the roof.
As you might imagine, this is one esoteric offering and won't be in production very long...
The correct trucks for these cars were Pullman 6' wheelbase trucks. These are available separately in limited numbers. These trucks are cast in brass with a full set of etched brass brake levers and clevis. Every detail is included.
