Found a few pictures but looking for a few more photos to push me over the edge to purchase these. Im interested in the 18" passenger cars and the scale freight cars. Any help is appreciated!

Depending upon what you're looking for, you might want to take a look at some photos in my "Part 3" listing over on the "For Sale" forum.  Could save you a few bucks on completely unused, factory-new circus items.  They've been stored on shelves for several years now.  Let me know.

I have the complete set of the k-line Ringling cars. I think these are spectacular. This is how I used them on my layout.

Thanks for the photos! Those heavyweights look great! The only thing I don't know if I could get past is the silhouettes.

 

How about the aluminum cars, anyone have any experience with those?

They made the cars in three different versions. 027 plastic like the Lionel 2400 cars expect longer, 18 inch Heavyweight both with and without interiors, and 18 inch Aluminum. If you go to this site they list all the circus cars and engines. http://www.legacykline.com/apps/kl/kline_ui.html   Hope this helps. Don

Here's a list of most of the cars and trailers I have.  These are the older, silhouette cars.  They're toys so in my imagination the silhouettes in the cars are real people just like the engines are real.  The really great thing about the circus train is that any road name engine is or could be appropriate to pull the cars.

Unboxed some and took a few more photos. I haven't gotten down to the layout to run these but they are quickly becoming favorites the more I look at them. Love the bare aluminum.
