Re: RITS: HEAVYWEIGHT PULLMAN DIAGRAMS
Again, nothing is simple. I wish I were more comfortable with heavyweight
passenger car data. Here is what I can piece together. For what its worth!
Rock _______ Pullmans Built 1929. 8 Sections 1 Drawing Room 2 Compartments.
Plan 3979. Were not assigned to Rock Island when Pullman Co. was broken up,
so may not be particularly appropriate for later years. However, the 10-51
Official Guide does show an 8-1-2 on trains 15 and 18 and on 111 and 112.
Mainline Modeler 8-86
Island _______ Pullmans Built 1929 (?) 10 Sections 1 Drawing Room 1
Compartment. Plan 3973. Again, not assigned to RI in 1948. However, 10-51
Official Guide shows 10-1-1's on 16 and 17. Mainline Modeler 2-85
Clover _______ Pullmans Rebuilt in 1936 to 8 Sections 5 Bedrooms, Plan 4036G
from 12-1-1 cars built in 1913. Clover Garland, Clover Grange, Clover
Greens and Clover Vista (4036B) were assigned to RI. Mainline Modeler had
plans in April of 1986 of 4036A. 10-51 used on 5, 14, 15 and 18 shuttling
between the Twin Cities and KC and DM and Chicago.
Rocket Tower Pullman rebuilt in 1941 to 8 Sections 3 Bedrooms 1 Drawing
Room, Plan 4090C. Assigned to Rock Island in 1948. Plan 4090G was in
Mainline Modeler 9-89. Used on Zephyr Rocket .
Cedar Rapids Pullman 10 Sections 3 Bedrooms, Plan 3411C. Scale Model Plans
Unknown. Used on Zephyr Rocket.
Hope this helps.
