W932-6722 Walther's RTR 85' P-S 6-6-4 Sleeper, Santa Fe
ONLY ONE AVAILABLE AT THIS PRICE
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.
Walther's Pullman-Standard passenger cars bring this variety to HO Scale passenger trains with models matching the performance and detailing of the 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 Santa Fe's "Chief", the "Golden State Limited" and UP's "City" streamliners, the 6-6-4 sleepers operated coast-to-coast on a variety of railroads. Each had six open compartments, six roomettes and four double bedrooms perfect 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.
