Kris Primo Hawaiian Beer Rolling Stock

Primo was Hawaii's original beer, dating back to 1897. The late Jim Sattler, who owned Honolulu Trains and Hobbies, 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, which sold out quickly. The first three cars pictured below represent the original order. The fourth and fifth photos are other cars that were made. None of the cars below are documented in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains.
