Weekend tinplate photos/videos 12/14/18!

I found this Bing station, that was made with catalogue number 10/6123 from 1926-1929; the same station building was also used with other Bing stations with wings on one or both sides. There should be flagpoles (with flags) on the roof and the tower, but these are missing. Size of this station is 23 * 13 * 28 cm.

The station doors can be opened. A nice detail is that through the gate from the front (street side) of the station one sees the trains while from the platform side one sees the village/city with a passing car.

More pictures and more stations can be seen in the newest version of my (free to download) e-book on tinplate accessories: A book full of tinplate accessories

A little rough and ready , with a "bespoke" tender I feel ...

My latest European find , a Charles Rossignol CR-300 Loco ... No shelf Queen but she runs well

( I think my taste goes more towards toys "that have lived " they may not always be so pretty , but they obviously gave many years of joy .... )

C1950's..

CR 300

Oh and in the mail from Canada this week came a nice little token from the 1934 World's Fair...

worlds fair token

Worlds fair

To match my locally sourced M-10000 ( how this ever got to Australia I dont know , but it had been in the one family in Perth since at least the 40's apparently , perhaps a gift from a US serviceman )

George S very graciously sent me some unneeded parts he had for my 262 project. Didn't even want me to cover the shipping.While this is very much appreciated...I think all he did was give me another locomotive to rebuild! When I took the parts engine out of the box, the first thing I thought was what parts it would need to be complete again. 

 Thanks George!!

 

I was too busy pulling parts I forgot to grab a pic of the parts engine as delivered...

CR 300

This streamlined trains in various liveries with CR number 300  were made by Rossignol in 1939 and in the beginning of the fifties. I do not know how to tell the difference. Here is my CR300 set in red:

Your tender should be numbered 301.

Jingle Bells, Shotgun shells....

The Christmas Express is a repainted and relabeled plastic toy my wife got me a couple of Christmases ago. It's battery powered and runs on O gauge track. Also shown on the outside track are my new North Pole Express cars. They are pulled by a Marx 666. On the inside track is my traditional old school tin holiday train, the Christmas Cannonball. It has an "eggnog" tank car, a large gift car, a reindeer car, small gift car and caboose. Some of the tin cars have temporary festive wraps for  Christmas Cannonball duty.

When they were passing out brains, I thought they said trains and I asked for a slow one.

From 1932 American Flyer Set #907T - The Commander

Catalog cut

1932_Commander

...and set contents

1932_AF_Set_Commander_907T

as you might expect with American Flyer there are some differences between the catalog illustration and the actual set contents. The train set in the photograph was a boxed set complete with all the paperwork. To be fair, Flyer does state in the caption below the illustration that the set now contains an observation car and a new larger tender with imitation coal which is exactly what this set has.

Looking good Dave! Two shells and no pilot? What is this world coming to?

I love to see these old trains put back to good condition!

ACE founded by Allen Levy in Great Britain has produced around 1998 a very nice set of new French tinplate passenger cars set. They made several models in different liveries; this one is the PO set, for Paris Orleans railways.

ACE always in activity still continue to manufacture many gorgeous models but, unfortunately for French collectors, mainly for the British market.

apparently European parents less concerned with their kids being injured by tinplate in the 1950s than their American counterparts and for that I applaud them.

Thanks for all of the great posts again this week folks.  This thread is one of the things that I always anticipate about the weekend.

My offering again this week is some Ives.  I have had these two cars sitting in a box for awhile waiting for the appropriate engine to drop into my lap.

 

They are a #62 Parlor Car in Cadet Blue

and a #68 Observation Car also in Cadet Blue

While doing research on The Ives Train Society website I discovered that they are part of Outfit #480 from 1929.

(The following photos are borrowed from The Ives Train Society website.)

The set is known as the Blue Comet Express. I am missing the No. 3260 Locomotive - which is actually a Lionel 248 body.

However, I came across a second #62 Parlor Car and a #3255R Locomotive that was produced in 1927.  

I am fairly certain that it is a repaint because it's condition is just too good. I do think that it might have originally been Cadet Blue from what I can see of the inside of the engine.

So until a #3260 in Cadet Blue comes along what I have is the Northwoods Blue Comet Express 

Have a Great Tinplate weekend

Hello Tinplate Lovers, 

Here's my last "rescued" #227 prewar switcher going topless under my friends Christmas tree a few years ago. 

I picked up my very first Dorfan cars last Sunday and the Toy & Train Show in White Plains, NY. I just need to take a picture of them! Maybe by next week.

Arrrrgggghhhhh!  Arne you beat me to the punch!    I've been thinking about the same thing - I have a Bing submarine and I was trying to figure out if I could get a restore-able  Hornby depressed center flat do a repaint, scratch build some supports, and have a tinplate submarine car too.  Good job.
