Pullman-Standard’s plan 4183A Post-War 6-4-6 Sleepers were rated as some of the most comfortable sleepers that Pullman ever produced and proved very popular with overnight passengers wherever they operated. They were a vast improvement over the pre-war version because the bedrooms had been moved to the center of the car for the most comfortable ride. State-of-the-art electrical systems and trucks were also light years beyond the cars delivered in the early 1940′s making them popular with operating departments.

The Rapido model is based on plan 4183A delivered to CN in 1954, which is very similar to plan 4183 delivered to L&N, C&EI and NCStL in 1953 and plan 4197 delivered to UP and WABASH in 1955.

From the exterior and interior details to the working interior lights these passenger cars could be considered works of art. Jason brought his pre-production models of “The Canadian” to Moncton as part of Rapido Trains’ “The Canadian on Tour. Eventually the whole train (except for locos) stretched out on the tables in front of us. We’ve been waiting for this for months and finally June 1st arrived.
