Standard Heavyweight Passenger Cars were different to any other rolling stock in the type of cargo that it carried... people. Used in mainline passenger car service, Heavyweight Passenger Cars were considered the ultimate in luxury travel throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Many times, the interiors of the cars were elegantly decorated with plush seating, antique lighting, and other such amenities.

Built with all-steel construction (which gave them their nickname "heavyweights") these Pullman cars were the finest on rails in the 20s and 30s. Bring the era to life on your layout with these models, painted and lettered for some of the most colourful trains of the times. Each features a fully detailed interior with working lights, removable roof, operating vestibule doors, sprung trucks, detailed bodies and brass handrails. Because of their size, these cars should be operated on large radius curves.

The Standard Heavyweight passenger cars are based upon a design built by the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company for the Central Railroad of New Jersey (CNJ) in the early 1920's.
