NEW HAVEN 8600 SERIES PASSENGER CARS

In order to attract customers back to the rails after the end of WWII, the New Haven decided to modernize the fleet with new lightweight passenger cars. In December 1945 a large order was placed with Pullman-Standard for a variety of car styles, including 103 coaches, 25 parlor cars, diners, grill diners, combination baggage buffet lounge/parlors, and two tavern lounge observation cars. These were produced in the old Osgood Bradley factory in Worcester, MA, so they bear more than a passing resemblance to the Osgood Bradley Lightweights delivered in the 1930s.

The New Haven's stainless cars were not built entirely from stainless steel like the cars produced by Budd in Philadelphia. Instead, they were constructed from Cor-Ten steel and sheathed with stainless steel fluting panels. The New Haven touted the 8600s as "the newest of the new in coach equipment - gleaming stainless steel on the outside, the last word in attractive decoration and design on the inside."

The 8600-series coaches were ubiquitous, used on trains system-wide from delivery until the Penn Central years. Penn Central later sold 74 of the 8600s to MBTA and they remained in service in the Boston area until 1988! Northeastern modelers have waited far too long for accurate models of these iconic cars. The wait will soon be over.

Our HO scale model of the 8600-series coach is being produced in association with the New Haven Railroad Historical and Technical Association (NHRHTA).

Features:

  • Accurately scaled from original blueprints
  • Designed with input from NHRHTA
  • Correct tubular cross section with accurate Pullman-Standard stainless steel fluting profile
  • Rapido's renowned stainless steel finish at the correct color temperature for New Haven's cars
  • Partial skirting or no skirting as appropriate
  • Full underbody detail with separate air, steam and electrical lines
  • All-new 41-BNO-11 outside swinghanger trucks with blackened metal wheelsets
  • Full interior detail including see-through armrests
  • Operating diaphragms with end gates
  • Track-powered constant lighting for DC and DCC layouts
  • Separate grab irons, factory-installed
  • Can operate on 18" radius curves (minimum 24" radius without any modification)
  • Macdonald-Cartier metal magnetic knuckle couplers
  • Ten car numbers plus un-numbered available per paint scheme

Some product numbers will be exclusively available through NHRHTA. The MSRP is $99 per car (higher in Canada). The order deadline is September 30, 2015, and these cars will be delivered in early 2016.
