SouthWind imported only 25 of these NYC "swallowtail" observation cars. The NYC built two of these cars from standard coaches for use on the "Pacemaker" as stand-ins until the streamlined cars arrived. The model in the photo was finished by Dick Karnes. He used Des Plaines Hobbies and Champ decals, and S-scale Kadee couplers.
