While Pullman favored open section cars, travelers came to prefer private accommodations. This led to the 6-3 all-room sleeper, with six compartments and three drawing rooms. These cars were easily identified by the odd window arrangements on each side; one had 12 single windows spaced some distance apart, the other had paired windows placed close together. Popular on long-distance trains, 203 of the cars were built as Pullman Plan #3523 (cars from Lot #6152/6341 are the prototype for this model) from 1923-26. Air conditioning was added in the early 30s and some were still in service into the 1960s.
PLEASE NOTE: As these cars are the correct prototype length and feature full underbody detail to match the prototypes, a minimum 24" radius is recommended for operation.
