HO SUGGESTION

Pre-Divestiture - Cars that were known to be leased to or assigned to the D&RGW

(Note regarding modeling suggestions: Unless a model number is specified, an undecorated model should be used and painted. For instance, Branchline 5522 is CHIEF JOSEPH but it represents a post-divestiture car owned by the L&N - the CHIEF JOSEPH below would be in Pullman Green (and owned by Pullman). Likewise, some of the 10-1-2s indicated below are NOT the Branchline or Walthers models, they are an earlier design which can not be represented accurately with either model.)

This is not a definitive list, and more cars will be added and, no doubt, corrections will be made as time goes by.

Pullmans leased or assigned to the CB&Q and/or the WP for use in the Exposition Flyer that also would have shown up on the Rio Grande.

Note that cars leased or assigned to the CB&Q could have also traveled the Royal Gorge route as the Scenic Limited also included through cars from the CB&Q. A more definitive study of assignments is underway.

Notes on dates: Dates may be either the original build date or the date that the car was reconfigured.

For more information on Pullman-built sleepers, visit The Pullman Project.

For Information on lightweight cars, see the lightweight car spreadsheet.

 

Notes on car names: The car names can be confusing when found in consists due to the reuse of names and the fact that Pullman operated cars with some of the same names (for instance, MT. NEBO, MT. ELBERT). For the cars above, indicated as first (except for MT. PRINCETON), the second car was one of the lightweight cars from the 1950 order.
