Time to place your order ...
The Pullman-Standard 5277 CF "12-post" version was built only for Southern Ry. beginning in 1971 and the original Norfolk Southern starting in early 1973. Most lasted until the FRA 45-year interchange rule took them out of service. A model has never been produced in any scale. These kits are based on the 10-post "waffle box" produced by SMMW in the early 2000s using new patterns, new decal artwork, added details and upgraded brake system.
These resin kits will feature a 1-piece urethane body, separate urethane underframe, detail parts (including 3D SLA printed brake system), Accurail trucks, Kadee 33" wheelsets, Kadee #158 "Whisker" couplers, Mask Island decals and a mini-CD packed with detailed instructions and photos. Door castings are separate to simplify "modernizing" with fabricated replacement doors.
Production of these LIMITED RUN kits will begin in October-November 2021 and will only be guaranteed by paid-in-full orders received no later than 8/31/2021. Orders will be shipped on a first-paid-first-out basis.
Many modelers replied to my original "tire kicking" email blast earlier this year ... those folks will be emailed directly to confirm their reservations and place an order. An invoice will be emailed to you following order confirmation.
Those who have not contacted me should do so by the end of August to place an order. Click HERE, state the quantity of each kit you are ordering (use the kit number to avoid confusion) and include your mailing address if this will be the first time ordering from SMMW. An invoice will then be emailed to you.
