Product Information

Pullman-Standard delivered ten 16-4 sleepers (Plan #4108) to the Great Northern in 1947, for service on the "Empire Builder." Names and numbers were:
 
GN 1170 Blackfoot Glacier GN 1171 Ahern Glacier GN 1172 Grinnell Glacier GN 1173 Hanging Glacier GN 1174 Many Glacier GN 1176 Sexton Glacier GN 1175 Oberlin Glacier GN 1177 Harrison Glacier CB&Q 1178 Sperry Glacier CB&Q 1179 Siyeh Glacier
 
When the "Builder" was refitted in 1951, the cars were transferred to the new "Western Star" but also ran on the "Winnipeg Limited" , "Blackhawk," and other trains. (The cars differ by one window and the center skirts from the eight cars built in 1950 to Plan 4108A, #173-25/525.)
 
These sides include the original full skirting with etched line details and grab iron holes. The center skirts may be removed to model the cars in their later appearance. The sides are designed to be used with the American Limited Models Core Kits, sold separately.
