Kris Primo Hawaiian Beer Rolling Stock

Primo was Hawaii's original beer, dating back to 1897. The late Jim Sattler, who owned Honolulu Trains, received permission to use the Primo Hawaiian Beer logo and asked Andy Kriswalus to make 36 Primo cars. There were three sets of 12 cars each, and these sold out within a month at his train shop. The first three cars pictured represent what was in that original order. The fourth photo is of an extra car that was made. The first car below is the only one listed in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. Photos and descriptions courtesy of the B. Batt collection.
