B&O "CAPITOL LIMITED" 1957

Budd 16-4 Sleeper Dome Car

In January, 1951, the Baltimore & Ohio introduced domes to its premiere Pullman train, the Capitol Limited. Like the Columbian, the Capitol Limited connected New York, Baltimore, and Washington with Chicago, and in later years the two were combined into a single train.

We are changing out the "Royal Blue" offering for the "Capitol Limited". We think most of you that reserved the Royal Blue would go for this, and more.  We are making the 1957 Version with the added Budd Sleepers, and Budd Dome Sleeper.

Come on board this iconic train in scale accurate and detailed Aluminum. Designed to run on 054 or larger radius 3 Rail track, 56" Radius 2 Rail Track. Expect all the trimmings.

The dome car will have working flood lights to enjoy the scenery even at night.


The Consist for the 8 car Set Includes:

- Combine (Smooth Sided, Blue and Grey Colors)

Santa Fe Super Chief 1938-1947

July 2, 1938: Lightweight cars built by Pullman-Standard replace the Chief cars. Until 1946 each trainset makes a weekly round trip between Chicago and Los Angeles, averaging 636 miles (1,024 km) per day.

June 2, 1946: The train reverts to its prewar schedule of 39 hours and 45 minutes.

September 29, 1946: Super Chief begins running every other day, departing Los Angeles and Chicago on even-numbered days. With the El Capitan departing on odd-numbered days (except the 31st), the two trains formed what the Santa Fe billed as "the first and only daily
39  hour service between Chicago and California.(Wikipedia)

Hiawatha


GGD Trains 2018

Milwaukee Road "Olympian Hiawatha"
RESERVATIONS CLOSED (STANDBY ACCEPTED)

OOPS.. The Correct Paint Scheme for 1952 is Orange Letterboard with Maroon Lettering. I had incorrectly stated in the past we were doing the Maroon Letterboard. That was pre-1952. Before Super Domes were introduced.

On June 29, 1947 the Milwaukee Road inaugurated its streamlined flagship, the Olympian Hiawatha on a 43-hour, 30-minute schedule. The Milwaukee advertised the faster train as a "speedliner".


Creek Series - Skytop Lounge (Milwaukee Colors)

Creek Series - Skytop Lounge (UP Colors)

In 1949 the train received the new Skytop Lounge and sleeper cars and in 1952 the train received the Super Domes.. GGD is making an 8 car set for the 1952 era. Each car built exactly like the prototype, no cutting corners to save on tooling. This will be a scale accurate set.
