Combines, as the name suggests, housed two car types under one roof, offering efficiency by reducing one car from the train. A common type was the coach-baggage, accommodating passengers and luggage. Often used on small trains and light branch lines in the later decline of passenger rail travel.

Positioned at the train's front, the car earned the term "head-end equipment," alongside locomotives and non-passenger units like the RPO (Railway Post Office) for mail transport. Combine cars, serving as coach-RPOs, placed the mail section ahead of passengers.

In our first production run, we are offering 8 different combines from 6 different railroads. We are also making 1 holiday scheme, and 1 unlettered car painted in Pullman Green. All cars will come with appropriate details and have Pulman 2411 trucks.
