Thanks Mel going have to get a manifest of just weaver cars soon 

Jim. Thanks for posting. I really like that  International covered hopper I never knew they made that one that is one beautiful car 

Clem. Thanks for posting. That’s a nice car I would hang on to that one. 

Here are some examples of Weaver rolling stock from my railroad.  Some I've weathered some not.   I have about 10 or more Weaver 50 ton hoppers in N&W, B&O, Reading, Western Md., and Pennsy.  Could only find photos of the one Reading 50 ton.  IMG_3682IMG_3822IMG_4911IMG_4337IMG_4435IMG_3238IMG_3241IMG_3279IMG_3282IMG_1671IMG_1705IMG_1712IMG_6707IMG_6709

I have several Weaver cars from a club car custom run program on another forum. Weaver makes up the majority of my rolling stock collection. The Conrail H30 hopper was given to me by Joe Hayter as a thank you for filling in at the product introduction at the TCA Museum. Our club cars featured fallen flag roads, and tongue in cheek text specific to our forum.

Here's another Weaver steam engine...a brass 0-6-0 switcher factory weathered by the folks at Weaver long before I started to do my own work.

This shows there are a lot of Weaver fans out there. I'll have to post a few of my favorites when I get a chance. CLEM K your pic could be a crown model. Do you have the original packaging.  When Weaver purchased the tooling from Crown Models they did offer a number of the same cars Crown Models produced...........Paul

In the late mid-80's rolled back to O-gauge buying stuff use-to going back to the late 40's.  Lionel remakes of 6464's and K-Line's versions.  By late 80's had bought four Williams brass steam engine and two MTH scale diesels.  That is when the Weaver scale box cars caught my eye especially since they made so many Pennsy cars.  Have a total of 56 of their box cars, 33 Pennsy.  Somewhere have a box of a 120 die cast Bettendorf trucks to replace the plastic ones.

The last one was this B&O round top.

The one before this was a Pennsy double door box.  Both of these very highly decorated.

Oh Mark, two are Western Maryland one with the "Speed Ball."

I only have a couple of their locos, both of which I've shown before, but what the heck: 

IMG_20161231_144333535IMG_20161231_144655647

These both came to me as 3 rail engines; since that was before I started dabbling in "high rail", I purchased the conversion kits from NorthWest ShortLine and now they are set up for 2 rail. These are the earlier design with the centrally located can motor with shaft drive. Both run very well; nice and quiet.

Very impressive collection of Weaver rolling stock I would probably have as many if I would have started in O Scale when I should have I think I’m up to 10-12 cars now.

Mr Drennen,

On your Weaver Penna box car #28057, is there any wording on that car as to where to return it when empty?

Jim 

I took a pic for you of where to return pretty cool thanks for pointing this out.

Jim, does this special wording indicate it was a custom run for your store?

I have a Weaver PRR "Coal Goes To War" 2 bay ribbed coal car that was a "Custom run for Jim's Train Shop."

Lee at the time the Weaver cars were the best scale cars going especially  for the money.  Albeit the cost was lower because of the plastic trucks.  I was at the local dealer one day when he was on the phone with Weaver saying that his customers would gladly pay the extra 10-dollars for die-cast.  If recalling correctly Weaver told die-cast trucks for about $13 a set then.
