Only that with a roaring fire in the fireplace, Santa must have entered through a window or door, not the chimney!

I finally got my first set of tinplate passenger cars!  

A big thank you to the gang at Side Track Hobbies! Definitely worth a side trip for any tinplate enthusiast.  Here’s my brand new 700’s. Now I just need to look for appropriate power. Hmmmm...FA50D814-DB2B-4B37-8516-57C3E0A3032033F60251-2969-436D-A9DD-247C0C5D17FD7EA5625C-1CDC-4D30-8602-69F161F12AEC

May God Bless us all.

Sidetrack ie really great.  I remember the 384e Christmas I bought from them. When I unpacked it there 4 extra straight pieces of track slid into the box. I received a 400E 3 years ago that had paint loss, they replaced it. Therefore, they are Always my 1st choice! Beautiful set. A red 256 in your future?

John,

   Great looking Cars!  Love the Red!   Think ZW-L or Z4K for your new power supply.

PCRR/Dave

I meant locomotive- right now I use most mth bricks for power.

May God Bless us all.

John,

    I received some Pre-War AF Tin today also.  A real nice Red Lighted Caboose and a old Aqua and Orange Box Car.  Both in pretty darn good shape, I actually got them to couple with my Lionel Tin and  everything ran just great.  The Box car is one heavy piece of Tin for an O Gauge Car.

PCRR/Dave

Funny thing about these particular AF Cars, they have no ident numbers on them any place.

89,

   I know what you mean.  Hay your spell checker is changing words on you.  It changed the word made to male, try to keep an eye on it, mine is doing the same thing.

John,

   Did I actually read you were running great old Tin Plate Trains with MTH Bricks!   You have to pick up a Z4K and Side Receiver, along with the DCS and run the good old Tin Plate Engines with the DCS HHRC via the TR mode.  The old engines run smooth as silk in this manner, shame on you for powering your good Tin Plate with a nasty Brick.  Bricks are for building homes, not running classic Trains.

PCRR/Dave

Ya know you can't get into Tin Plate Heaven if you use Devil Bricks.

Mth z1000 or 750 brick through a throttle.  Or using the variable track voltage thru dcs tiu and remote.  Is there a problem I don’t see?

May God Bless us all.

John,

   Get rid of the stinking Devil Brick and upgrade to a Z4K or ZW-L, keep the Z1000 for small stuff!

Just Kidding you buddy!

PCRR/Dave

You can't run good Tin with a Devil Brick, the Lord does not allow it.

 Very nice!  The only new tinplate I have came from them.

Dennis Holler If its old and broke, I like it

IMG_3369IMG_3370IMG_3371IMG_3384IMG_3385Got a few things. Here are some Marklin and dorfan. So far I cleaned up the Dorfan caboose and the Shell tank car. Clean and wax is great.  The Sell car is almost completely rusted out from tge inside.  It seems these Marklin tank cars could carry fluids and of course rust from those same fluids.  The outside looks ok though

IMG_3379IMG_3380IMG_3381Almost forgot, this Ditmar passenger car was in the same lot as the Marklin and Merkur cars.  Never heard of Ditmar, but it looks like they did make a few trains.

Nice Steve!

Steve,

   Now that is a nice Reading Hopper!

It would be a great addition to the big Tin Plate Train, on the ceiling shelf layout. She would fit right in after the Spot Light Flat Car about 9 Car back.

Tin Plate Trains the real Little Boys Toys!

Crane Cars are my child hood favorite Toy !  Well along with a Bowie Knife and Fine L.C. Smith Shotgun.

Joe,

   I have made it a strict policy to use the Buy Now entity, no bidding.  One of the reasons is more than likely you are bidding against one or even a few of the different forum members, and you end up driving the cost up most times, much more than the item is actually worth.

Thanks, Dave.  I'm putting together a regular freight consist and Christmas consist.  Also, waiting on FedEx/UPS for a couple passenger sets.  Hopefully, more pics later this week or next.  Though regrettably, no operating layout until this summer.

By the way, I laid out these cars on the window sill to take the pictures.  I told my twelve year old daughter to take a look.  She said, "cool".  Then after a few seconds she pointed to the yellow "girl's" car and said "I really like the colors of this one".  So after all these years, maybe Lionel did have a good idea with the girl's set after all!
