I know it shouldn't be here and there is a dedicated A.F. forum for HO but when I came across it I just couldn't resist. It is #30510 1959-60 “The Marketer” HO Freight Set - #'s 31031 (Penn Switcher), 33521, 33505, 33519. Complete except for track (which I have). Thought you might find it interesting. Barry

Gilbert HO is an interesting part of history. I received a Gilbert HO set in 1956. Over the years I focused on S gauge and my brother took the HO and built a small collection of Gilbert.

Great looking set Barry. Everything appears to be in excellent condition. I've had a few opportunities to pick up some Gilbert HO, but have managed to talk myself out of buying any.

This Wabash hopper is one of my transition cars. The hopper cars
trucks are easy to change as the trucks are held on by a screw.
No rivet to mess with. But the trucks will be different as you can
see. Fine with me but might bother some.

That is an easy way to make a transition car. This one however does not seem to be performing that function in the picture. The sheet metal truck needs to have its link coupler reinstalled when it is done pulling that 938 caboose.
