My brother and I are trying to duplicate the 1950 UP Alco Freight set.  Our third brother, who passed away a few years ago, had one as a boy, and his daughter would like to put one together for her daughter.

I am looking for the number of the set and a listing of its contents so that we can duplicate it as closely as possible.  I don't have much in the way of PW resources, so any help would be much appreciated.

Hope this gets you started. Sounds like a fun project.



I have the 1950 2023 passenger set with the 3 passenger cars which is available at a low price.  I know you are looking for the freight set but if this would help, let me know. I gave this to my son but his kids are into video games, phones, etc. and don't really want it.


Palallin,  The consist that Kverdon listed is the correct one, from "The Standard Catalog of Sets"- Doyle's book.  There is nothing special mentioned about the color of the hopper, as far as the color, that would have made it unique.  If you could find one of the scarcer color combination, all the better, BUT it appears nothing is special as color.  It is your choice as to making up the Set, as you remember it.  Bottom line is have fun searching.  Good luck with your search.

Yup, lots of choices, so pick your favorite.  But if you follow the chart listed on Tandem-Associates, only Black or Red were available in 1950-51, and other colors were issued later.  The funny think with the RED cars, they are most typically Maroon, and not a true Red.  Just sayin’.
