if you have any passenger cars in the junk box that need some TLC that you want to send this way, I won't mind

I have a few incomplete set of passenger cars so I have growth potential.

The last time was a 610 and 612 prewar I restored.

Plastic

Yesterday I dived into the junk box and found an interesting item, A shell with some chips revealing the plastic underneath. SO I decided to take a look.









Some interesting color is there.

A Candy Cane Boxcar????

Leave it just like it is.
Some go through a lot of trouble weathering to get that result.

Originally a Christmas car?

What....T man has a junker that won't need any epoxy?

T-Man, I love your junk box, got any old Marx motors in there?

Cheers, Ian

We've seen other Lionel plastic shells (locos, maybe?) that are a rainbow of swirled colors when stripped bare.

Makes me wonder if Lionel melted down all of its excess/scrap plastic into a swirly goo, and injected that into the mold dies.

A number of old cars have some interesting plastic designs under the paint, that's not all that uncommon. I've seen swirls like that on cars that the paint was stripped, not sure how it came to be. I guess what was under the paint wasn't all that important...

It would make a good Xmas car.










I still have two Marx engines that need help . I grab them if I find them.

That is a Jimmie Hendrix Purple Haze car.

I saw an article about that, but can't remember what it said as it was so long ago.
