Hello! I have a Pennsylvania observation car made by U&R manufacturing company that was only around for 3 years. This is the only information I have been able to find out about it:


I wanted to see if it may have more value due to the rarity of it. See attached pictures. Does anyone know how to find this out?

I am also attaching a picture of trolly I cannot find any information on.

That is why they have the TCA. I once talked to dealer in California. He said in the prewar years there many small manufacturers that have come and gone. Price catalogs only have the more successful companies. In the last 15 years information about prewar has slowly been available to the public. My point is that this postwar collection is uncommon and the TCA is a source of information and buyers. You identified the company which is good. See if any sold at auction. That would be another avenue unless some else here would know.

Rarity only creates value if there is a demand for it. I'm hardly an expert, but I'd wager long odds that it's only worth a few bucks.
