Golden Gate Depot is proud to announce these Common Standard Cars in HO. The detail on these cars will be a level of detail and scale accuracy usually reserved for brass models costing hundreds more.

This new offerings is centered around the 72’ Interurbans or “Subs”. Widely used in California in the 1920s and beyond, these cars were the backbone of the SP for commutes on the Peninsula and later in other areas of California and Arizona. Built by the Pullman Company in the 1920s, these coaches were often referred to as Suburbans, or "Subs". Later they were lumped into the description of common standard cars of the early 1900s as "Harrimans".  The term "Harriman" refers to railroad equipment built in the 1900's and 1910's to a set of common standards that were used when E. H. Harriman controlled both the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific railroads. But for now we will call them by their class, 72-IC-1/2, Interurban "Subs". They are 72’ over the sills, 80’ coupler to coupler and will have all the trappings of a precision made, brass scale model, but in plastic with the great running characteristics you expect from GGD.

In Addition to the Subs we are offering a Club/Lounge, Diner, Coach and Observation Car. Cars will be detailed per era of the paint scheme, i.e. air conditioning and window and vent differences appropriate for the era.
