A Really Nice Restoration of classic 18" cars
You are looking at a really neat early standard gauge set of three passenger cars. These are three of the larger sized passenger cars in standard gauge. These were very nicely restored at some point in their lives.
These cars started life as the mojave version of the cars. They have been repainted for the more interesting orange.
The paint job is the harder to find orange version. They would look great with your orange electric outline engine such as the 9U or a 408e or even a steam engine such as a 400e.

CONDITION: Nice restoration. Good paint job and printing. If you look super close, you can see the imperfections under the paint from the original car. It is a great paint job and decalling, but I would not rate it as factory-level. Decalling shows a little bit of wear, but not much. At least one coupler is a replacement. Some coupler pockets have brass screws instead of the rivet. Some window inserts missing as pictured. One chassis tank is missing.
