Atlas HO Scale: Pullman 8-1-2 Heavyweight Sleeper - Canadian Pacific

In 1927, the Pullman Company introduced its Plan 3979 sleeper. This design featured 8 sections, 1 drawing room, and 2 compartments in an attempt to balance the economy of sectional berths with an increased desire by travelers for more privacy options. The compartments, which included their own sink and toilet, provided enclosed travel for two, while the drawing room added sofa accommodation and floor space for an additional passenger. The arrangement of the rooms in the car also enabled the creation of suites for families or larger parties through connecting doors. The design proved very successful, with 250 cars being produced between 1927 and 1930. These 8-1-2 sleepers were found across the country in both pool service and dedicated assignments to many colorful name trains from the 30s through the early 60s, with several ending their careers in MOW service.
