    I need assembly instructions for a vintage Walthers Observation car (HO). Know where I can get one?

    Have you tried contacting Walthers to see if they have a copy in their files that they could scan and send to you?

    Already conacted Walthers

    Yep, the man at Walthers told me he checked all their archives and couldn't find this one.

    Perhaps, someone has an old kit which he's recently purchased on Ebay like I did. Scan it and email it to me, p-u-l-e-e-z-e?

    Vintage Walthers Details

    The end of the box sez, "7801 80' Observation less trucks".

    This kit predates my first experience with American HO (1954), the first being Marklin (1952, purchased in Germany), so let's say, late 40s or early 50s.

    Maybe the NMRA have it in their library?
