Broke they are both nice cars. The walking brakeman will buzz because that is how the man moves back and forth. They can be less noisy but not silent like the 977 can be.

For my picture contribution today I chose two cars on my layout. The one on the right is a current production American Models with free rolling trucks. These cars will start rolling on any track that is not level. The car on the left is not common. It was made and sold in the 70’s by Kris Model Trains. They bought 3000 leftover Gilbert shells and chassis from Hobby Surplus. New artwork was made for about 60 different roadnames and paint schemes. They were sold with either knuckle couplers or Pikemaster couplers. The one I have has a link coupler sheet metal chassis so someone must have changed it.
The paint quality and sharpness is much better than the Gilbert factory cars. Three of the pictures are with flash to get a sharper picture. The last one is without flash to show the colors more accurately, the flash tends to wash them out.

Nice cars Broke and Tom. Here is a couple of mine. A nice shell tanker and probably a 642 boxcar. Not a 642, maybe a 633.
A B&O box car. I looked on my inventory list and it is a 633. But
with knuckle coupler. Must be converted. Both cars are in nice condition.

Cool, I was going to delete it but couldn't figure out how. Probably need to be a moderator.

No problem Adam, we like trains.
MoPac, that is a red 633 with correct link coupler trucks. The couplers were just changed. It is very hard to tell but it looks like a red painted version. Those are hard to find, especially in good shape. It has 2 spring trucks, if it is painted it is likely 1951 production, maybe 1952. Most red 633's were red plastic. All the brown/tuscan 633's are painted. The Black shell tank car is nice, it has the slotted trucks.

Tom, I may try to find the 633 tomorrow and see if it is painted or not. Thanks for the info.
In my inventory list I put what box each item is in. so should be easy to find.

I happen to have two of these, both in the same condition. They fire the planks out quite far so you need a netted platform to catch them in. Need to apply a little heat to the wheels to get rid of the release agent residue. I realize I put the wrong remote with it. It should be "Lumber Car". J.B.
