Prototype Information:
The Bi-Level "Gallery" commuter car continues to be a favorite design of many commuter rail agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The design made its debut on the Chicago & North Western railroad for their Chicago area commuter service in the 1950s.

Model Information:
All of our Bi-Level gallery cars feature prototypical interiors and the distinctive green-tinted windows. The Cab/Coach models are equipped with Golden White LED directional head/taillights which can be switched on and off for operation mid-train.

Kinematic Knuckle Couplers are included to model close coupling in dynamic push/pull operation. The couplers are easily installed with a phillips screwdriver and are a unique feature to our Bi-Level passenger cars. The Kinematic Knuckle couplers expand and contract as the cars move about your layout, which keeps the cars close together on straights and at a working distance around curves.

RTA and Chicago & North Western Cars can be re-numbered with the optional 850470 Dry Transfer decal kit - this allows modelers to enjoy a car that's pre-numbered out of the box but also have the flexibility to run multiple uniquely numbered cars in a consist! The existing numbers can be easily rubbed away with thinner without damaging the underlying paint and the dry transfers give a "factory applied" appearance with ease!

You can see a video of the process for applying Dry Transfer decals on our Youtube channel here: LINK
