Budd Business Cars
Prototype Information
  • The prototype, a 1952 corrugated-side car originally operated by the Burlington Route as the "Burlington", is still in use today. It now carries the name "Mississippi" as part of the BNSF executive fleet.
  • Also known as Private Cars, Business Cars have existed since the early days of railroading. They are generally self-contained with office, meeting room, track inspection, entertainment, dining and sleeping facilities on board for railway officials and their invited guests.
  • Assigned to key railway personnel for the purpose of inspecting track and traveling on company business, these cars were often handled on the rear of a convenient regularly scheduled passenger run. Today, it is not uncommon to see them at the back of an Amtrak or freight train.
  • It is not unusual to see a Business Car from one railroad on another railroad's track.
  • Some political candidates have also utilized Business Cars while "whistle stop" campaigning for elected office.
Model Features
  • Past winner of Model Railroader Readers' Choice N Scale Rolling Stock Model of the Year Award.
  • Two different car names for nine popular railroads (Amtrak, CB&Q, PRR, CP, NYC, UP, SF, Southern, SP). An Undecorated model is also available.
  • Union Pacific, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific and Undecorated cars are guaranteed to still be available through all dealers. (Availability of other roads subject to dealer stock.)
  • Interior can be dramatically lighted with optional installation of #11-209 DCC/DC Lighting Kit or 11-204 Analog Lighting Kit (sold separately).
  • Magnificant recreation of corrugated siding.
  • Suitable for 1952 and later modeling.

Part #: Kat-156-0818-KB - BNSF Road #: 1 "Gerald Grinstein" - Budd Business Car
Click picture to see large view
Budd Business Car BNSF #1 "Gerald Grinstein" -
Originally built in 1952 for the then-president of the CB&Q Harry Murphy, BNSF #1 has had many names, including CB&Q “Burlington” and BN’s “Mississipi River” - today it has been refitted and relabeled with BNSF’s new “Swoosh” logo and the name of former BN CEO Gerald Grinstein who was part of the merger of BN and ATSF into the BNSF. This model will replicate many of the specific details of this particular car, including a custom built rear porch, dome antennas on the roof, and the new name plates that are mounted with the BNSF lettering atop the car’s corrugated ribbing.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
