Walthers 932-6789 HO Scale PS 64 Seat Coach Chesapeake & Ohio C&O
Like New USED
With big plans for its post-war streamliner fleet, the New York Central placed an order for 153 coaches with Pullman-Standard in May 1944. Deliveries of the cars (plan #7484) began in February and continued through October of 1946. At the time, this was the largest equipment order delivered within a single year. Although intended for general service, the cars were delivered with fluted sides that would allow them to be used with Budd cars. On delivery, these were truly state-of-the-art coaches, complete with air conditioning, deep reclining seats, individual lighting, large windows, full-width diaphragms and more. These cars led long lives and were later converted for commuter service. Others were acquired by Amtrak(R) in 1971 and continued in service for several years. A few survive today.
Typical of post-war streamlined designs, these cars helped railroads increase profits on short and medium distance runs. By reworking the interior with smaller washrooms and placing seats closer together, more passengers could be carried per trip.
These models include all the features found on Walthers passenger cars and will be offered in both fluted or smoothside versions, as well as with or without side skirts to match prototype practice.
