GN Oriental Limited 14 Section Tourist Sleeper

HO Scale Produced by The Bethlehem Car Works.

This kit is intended to represent Great Northern 14-section tourist sleeping cars originally received from Barney & Smith as GN 629(1st)-637(1st) in September 1902 and 6568-6611 from September 1907 through 1910.

Nearly all of these cars received maintenance numbers in 1923 after Pullman had taken over sleeping car service on the GN. A few were renumbered to 492-499 and remained as tourist sleepers until the major passenger car renumbering of 1926-1930, at which point ALL of the cars received outfit car numbers and were placed in GN’s O3000 series.

The first of the cars to be retired were several which were retired in the late 1930s and early 1940s. There is no evidence that any of the cars received steel center sills or steel sheathing. Most of these cars lasted into the mid-1950s, with two not being retired until 1968 and one lasting until 1971.
