The Santa Fe “El Capitan” offered coach travel between Chicago and Los Angeles using hi-level coaches along with a diner and lounge, its double decker hi-level cars providing a greater passenger capacity than traditional single-level trains.
Based off of the C&NW Bi-Level commuter cars, the El Capitan Hi-Level cars were the first of their kind to be used in long distance service, pioneering the concept of affordable, reliable service and providing the basis for today's modern Amtrak fleets (the Amtrak Superliners were, in fact, built off the design of the original Santa Fe Hi-Level coaches and many Santa Fe cars ran alongside Superliners in the early days of Amtrak). In the late 50's, the Santa Fe would run the Super Chief and El Capitan as a combined train, with consists that could vary but were often upwards of 18-20 cars.
All new tooling for cars, including the Baggage-Dormitory visual transition car and the step-down coach car. Tail-end coach has illuminated marker lights and light-up "El Capitan" conquistador Drumhead. Each car is equipped with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and shock absorber construction for smooth and reliable operation. Columbia Tandem Bicycle, 1950's, chrome fenders,original seats, kickstand, looks to be in working condition just needs new tires and a clean-up.
The arrival of American Models’ new Pacific was greeted with great enthusiasm.  For most people, just the production of the first new S scale steam locomotive in a generation was enough to get excited about. This project covers the process of making major modifications to the American Models Pacific to create a reasonable model of the Southern Pacific P-10. Once begun, however, the process was far easer than I imagined, and the results were worth the effort.


As the larger Mountain and Daylight locomotives took over the name trains in the late 1930s, the P-10s were relegated to secondary passenger and freight service.  They worked right up to the end of steam on the Espee, sprinting Harriman suburban cars in commute service between San Francisco and San Jose on weekdays and racing long freights up and down the California central valley on weekends.
The PBL Sunbeam headlight was cut from its base and remounted on a River Raisin headlight bracket.  This assembly was then ACC’d to the boiler front along with the new stanchions and hand rails.
The crosshead was modified to resemble the correct Walschaert valve gear and a lower crosshead guide added to complete the illusion.  Precision plastic locomotive brake hangers and shoes were added to the back two sets of drivers and a brake shoe assembly was fabricated using brass wire and Precision plastic brake shoes to the pilot truck. Because I use a PFM sound system, I removed the American Models chuff and smoke feature from my model.  The tender was then rewired with a new connector plug to replace the original oversize switch and plug arrangement. The model photos show a shorter-than-prototype three-hatch tender that has since been replaced by the proper four-hatch tender from SouthWind Models, refitted with the same American Models trucks described in the text.

The El Capitan was revolutionary in that it offered excellent service and a train schedule that matched the speed of first class sleeper trains such as the "Super Chief" while remaining affordable to the every-day passenger.
Kato USA has put together a small video presentation featuring this combined consist, as accurately reproduced using cars from both of the classic name train series sets and their supporting add-on packs of cars.

A place to hang-out, bring and brag, announce a new products, show-off your latest project or share a tip or technique. In fact, in January 1958 the "El Capitan" and "Super Chief" trains were consolidated to run together, though in peak traffic times such as Chrismas or the summer months the two would still keep separate train schedules to accomodate the increased ridership.
