Years ago I inherited a number of Tenshodo passenger cars that were purchased around 1959 and which had only limited running. They've been sitting on a shelf in their original boxes for the last 40 years. I have not bothered to see how they run as the Grizzly Northern is a 1930's steam era CPR subsidiary. It would be interesting to know whether they are worthy collector's items. Here's a list:
12 Union Pacific “City of Los Angeles”, flush sided, yellow body, grey roof cars:
Baggage/Day Coach w. seating, lighting installed. Paint chipping on roof
Day Coach w. seating, lighting (uninstalled)
Vista Dome Observation w. seating, lighting installed
Diner w. interior tables, chairs, lighting installed. Paint blemished roof end
Diner w. tables, chairs, lighting (uninstalled). Paint chip left front skirt
Vista Dome Observation w. seating, lighting installed
Compartment Sleeper (high/low alternating windows)
Vista Dome Coach w. seating, lighting installed and instructions inc. Paint chip left skirt
Compartment Sleeper (up/down windows). Paint chip centre roof line
Baggage Car
Diner w. interior tables, chairs, lighting installed
Compartment Sleeper (high/low alternating windows)

One Canadian Pacific stainless steel, flute sided, Observation car (no dome) w. seating and lighting (uninstalled)
