Unknown passenger cars

Postby Murad » Sun Jul 30, 2017 3:19 pm

Bought on ebay 2 passenger cars . First have stamped body, wooden roof, hp passenger trucks and couplers. The second one have CAST sides, ends, cast seats and trucks. There is "RED BALL" written on the trucks. Could you help to identify the manufacturer of the cars?

Hi Murad!
I think the top one is a Jewell model, they used a wooden roof and sides stamped out of a thick metal foil. if the sides wrap around to the end and go to the end door with no seam that would tell,
I'm not sure on the second- if it is cast metal it is a Gandy Dancer, their earlier cars had card stock sides but they came out with a cast metal boxcar and passenger cars. If the sides seem more like plastic it's probably a Star Line, they used some sort of early plastic for their sides with the rivet detail molded in.
Gandy Dancer made some cast trucks (Milwrd1 would know for sure!), or sometimes they would use HOn3 trucks with TT scale wheelsets. They do look close to the Kemtron "old time" passenger trucks, but I really can't tell for sure.
