Another homemade car was a Gold Bullion car. Windows were cut in both sides with a Dremel Moto tool with saw blade and a razor saw and plastic windows were added. Gold bars were made from kitchen match sticks painted gold. Two 12v or 7v in series mini Christmas lights were added, a feature the Lionel version does not have. A light pick up was made from brass shim stock.
Detail of homemade Pickup is below. A piece of tin can was added to improve durability of shim stock.
