Gulf, Mobile & Ohio
HO, N, S and O Scale Passenger Car Sides. Our sides are done with a white styrene outer side and a crystal clear plastic inner side that are to be glued together. The clear inner side is also used for window glazing. All sides are undecorated and require a core kit (roof, floor, ends) to make a car shell, or the use of a donor car, unless otherwise indicated. The diagrams shown are three or four colors: white lines are the outlines of the sides and doors (if the kit comes with separate doors), green lines are generally window openings, red and blue lines are details cut into the sides. Descriptions of the cars are of the prototype and usually tell the builder, number of cars made, the original owning railroad, and disposition of the cars. These descriptions are taken from the "Pullman-Standard Library" and the "Passenger Car Library" by RPC Publications, and are used with permission. All sides listed as fluted include fluting in the kit.
See the drop-down list for pricing on the scales available.

11 Coaches and 4 Parlor-1 Drawing Room cars with identical window arrangements were delivered in '47-'48 for use on the "Abraham Lincoln," "Alton Limited" and "Gulf Coast Rebel." They were unusual in that they rode on 6 wheel trucks.
These 4 cars were delivered in '50 for use on the "Alton Limited," "Midnight Special" and "Gulf Coast Rebel." They were the only cars ever built in this configuration. While GM&O's ACF Coaches had 6 wheel trucks, they decided to put 4 wheel trucks on these cars.
