Condition: 7+ Original Box: N/A Year: 1948
Here's an extremely clean set of green tinplate passenger cars produced in early 1948. Each car is all-original and all have beautiful exterior colors with crisp, complete side lettering that is not faded nor worn. Even the top and bottom of each car is as nice as the sides. The trucks and couplers are complete, functional and all interior lights work properly. Finally, there is no rust nor oxidation on any of the passenger cars.
It should be noted two of these cars have coil couplers -- which are generally viewed as incorrect for the 6400-series cars. However, it is well documented the early production 1948 tinplate passenger cars were produced with the carry-over coil couplers. When viewing the interior, it does not appear these couplers have been replaced -- they appear 100% original.
Please note: like most tinplate passenger cars from this era, the interior plastic window strips have deteriorated and are no longer attached to the side windows as seen in one of the photos above.
