The Railway Post Office during its peak was featured on over 9,000 railroad routes throughout North America delivering mail at a more efficient rate than ever seen before. Post Office employees sorted mail as they travelled. These Rivarossi RPOs also feature the iconic catching arm that was used in smaller towns for mail in canvas or leather bags to be delivered on board without the train ever stopping. The RPO and Combine have upgraded tooling and this is the first run in over 15 years.
Covering more than half of the country, Union Pacific connected the East to the West. With the design of Pullman’s luxury passenger cars, with the comfort of the passengers’ in mind, it changed what used to be a long and grueling journey into a satisfying experience.
Pullman was one of the most notorious names when it came to the railroad during the boom of train travel, producing a wide range of 60ft coaches for the various needs of the railroads.
These HO scale cars can run on a radius as small as 18in allowing them to run on compact layouts. All have updated tooling and feature knuckle couplers and factory installed grab irons. The high detailed coaches have metal wheels for lighting* the completed interiors.
