I misplaced my book that tells me what cars came with what engines. My Royal Blue has the cast-in handrails, what cars go with it?? Actually, I know what cars, (631, 633, 630), but what variation of 633 goes with it?? Thanks in advance.

The 633 is unpainted red plastic, diecast chassis, brass coupler weights and Type 1 trucks (slot above springs.)

I do not know either. Train Girl showed her Royal Blue set. Hers had a gray gondola. A rare car.
Tom, flyernut's Royal Blue has cast on handrails, so not a 1948. So probably not brass weight
couplers. And I guess variations of cars could exist. Here is a couple pics of mine. These cars are
not from same set. I don't really collect sets. If I happen to have the cars, fine. I have no set boxes.

LOL, my next electronic purchase will probably be a new laptop. Things are starting to go on this one.
The SD card holder does not hold card anymore. That started this morning. I have to hold card in myself.
And my i and j seldom works the first time.

Oops, I read right over the cast in handrail detail. The 1950 set is different! There is no 633, the 50T set has a 642 American Flyer boxcar and a 638 caboose. The 50T is in fact an uncataloged set.
Sorry for missing that detail earlier Flyernut.

Mopac, if your computer is working fine with Windows 10 you can just buy a cheap port replicator (dock). the SD's and USB's plug into that. They also have HDMI outputs to drive a TV monitor. A good bluetooth keyboard and mouse can be had for under $70. Maybe you have better control than me but whenever I get a new laptop it seems to cost $2,000 so I only get one every 7 or so years.

My laptop came with Windows 8 and I loaded it with Windows 10. It works ok. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse
I got for my tower. I do not think either have been used. Laptop is about 6 years old. It is a cheap Dell that cost about
200.00. Does all I need. I just need the basics.

Would that be a red 642 or a brown 642?? I think it's a red one, but not sure, black weight couplers?..

mopac,
You mentioned that "Train Girl showed her Royal Blue set. Hers had a gray gondola. A rare car ".
I saw this one the other day on eBay. Looked nice.
