The Stephenson trucks had been installed and used on different cars in the past, until I upgraded those other cars with heavier, air-brake equipped, trucks. I had planned on bringing these cars to train meets this summer to sell. But that did not happen. Pictured here they are all stacked together ready for transport with fancy cereal box cardboard dividers under the wheels to prevent them from marking up the deck.

The fifth (bottom of stack) car was a bench car and has black painted frame, painted blue deck with anti-slip tape on left and right side. The bench was removed making this a flat car.

$600 each. Located in Saint Louis MO.

I'll be at the Mid-South Live Steamers Spring 2021 meet, 28-Apr to 1-May, with the cars. Save on shipping and pick yours out while visiting the track.
