I thought y'all might be interested in this, at least it is interesting to me. I was at the LHS the other day and ran across this on the consignment shelf... for 5 bucks. I had to have it, not necessarily to even build it, but for historical value. I don't have a clue whether it is of any value. There is a date on the instruction sheet of 1950. Anybody been around long enough to have built these when they were new? Interestingly, the entire kit is made from metal, except for the wheels and couplers. Oh, and the floor is actually wood. Came with metal sprung trucks.
