History
My series (see thumbnail) of charming narrow gauge passenger cars are typical of those used from the 1880’s to the 1950’s, and many are still in use on tourist railways including the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railway in Colorado and the famous Knott’s Berry Farm in Southern California.

They were built by the Billmeyer and Small Company, the Jackson and Sharpe Company or in the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad shops to essentially the same plans, or “folio sheets”.

These historically accurate and highly detailed full scale (1:1) passenger cars would be an ideal Key Asset to late 19th Century to mid-20th Century period set design and imaging, and are capable of extreme close-ups and rendering. They are perfect companions to my D&RG C-16 2-8-0 locomotive (615818), D&RG Caboose (703198), and with different railroad names my RGS 2-6-0 locomotive (549042) or the Mason Bogie 2-6-6T locomotive (773808). They were also often used in “mixed consist” with boxcars (772159) and reefers, or refrigerator cars (772151).

They were originally painted a dark Tuscan red, also called “mineral brown”, but were repainted a dark Pullman Green (almost black) after 1905. The Adams and Westlake “Marker Lights” were used on the last car in the train, with the red lens facing the rear. The Marker Lights have separate “bulbs” for use with emissive or IES lights.

The Model
My SolidWorks™ CAD model was reverse-engineered from many sources and period photographs. It is representative of my museum quality work in the field of Industrial Archaeology (IA).

'Pullman Green' and 'Tuscan Red' were the most popular colors.   I color-mapped the features and appropriate surfaces to allow simplified material and color application to suit your scheme.

The lettering was created in SolidWorks as a 'Split Line', and is not actual geometry, allowing the use of your own labels or decals. Interior is modeled, including seats and stoves. Ornate 'Coach Lamps' are mapped to allow for emissive or IES interior lighting to suit.

The original SolidWorks™ model was saved as a Parasolid, then re-imported into SolidWorks 2011, resulting in a greatly reduced file size. Parasolid (x_t) files provide maximum cross-platform CAD compatibility. It was converted into the .obj format using SimLab Composer. Preview thumbnails rendered in KeyShot 4 Pro from Luxion.

The .obj is included for those who prefer to work from this format, but it is likely most will want to use and/or import the SolidWorks model. The .obj and SolidWorks model has been tested in KeyShot, but have not been tested in other apps such as Maya, modo, C4d and the like. Please review your modeling or rendering app to verify that it will import a SolidWorks model.

All parts and/or surfaces were color mapped within SolidWorks™, and migrated to the .obj format. The .obj imports in standard blue, but retains all original mapping. This mapping may or may not translate into Maya and other subD apps.
