Part #MTL-141 00 120

N Scale Supply Price
New: Sept 2013

This 83’ Pullman heavyweight sleeper 10-1-2 is painted orange with maroon bands on the letterboards. The herald is lettered in metallic gold as well as the rest of the lettering. The roof, undframe and trucks are brown. This sleeper was built in 1911 as the ‘Orleans’, rebuilt in 1927 as the ‘Marquette’, and scrapped in 1949. The builder was Pullman-Standard. The introduction of the steel cars brought the end of the luxurious, artisan-crafted wooden cars which had been the rule since the 1880s. With the opening of the Pennsylvania Station in New York in 1910, and the Grand Central Terminal in 1913, passenger safety in the tunnels approaching these buildings demanded a more noncombustible material.
