Jackson and Sharp Open Platform Passenger Coaches in HOn3

We are pleased to announce our D&RGW Jackson and Sharp Open Platform Passenger Coaches in HOn3. We will be offering individual coaches in the Pullman Green Paint Scheme and a limited release 3-pack in the Original 1950's "Painted Train" Rio Grande Gold scheme. We hope to deliver these very special cars in early 2011.

From 1880 to 1882, the Denver & Rio Grande Railway ordered approximately 60 narrow gauge coaches that would become the quintessential open platform style of car used on the Colorado 3- foot gauge line well into the 1950's. Typical of D&RG(W) equipment, the coaches went through various transformations in the early years. By the early 1900's, many of the cars had been converted from the old "duckbill" style roofs to the "bullnose" style that was more prevalent in later years. In the 1920's, the cars were lowered and reinforced to accommodate safety concerns. By the 1930's, the majority of cars had been re-built with double pane windows. A handful of the coaches survived on the D&RGW into the 1960's for use in Durango on the Silverton Branch.

Blackstone Models is proud to announce the release of seven versions of this classic coach in various configurations. We have given special attention to version-specific details such as:

Lamp Vent placement Rest rooms
Roof Conduit (where applicable) Underbody Detail
Arched and Square End Door Headers Interior Seating and Stoves
"Chili Line" Bay Windows for appropriate versions (Supplied Separately) Accurate Paint and Livery
Trucks equipped with electrical pickup wipers.
