* Revell may be the easiest of the old manufactures to collect because after a few years you can have a lot of what Revell has made. It any type of car whether caboose box or reefer, flat hopper or gondola, there are only a few of each made, 5 or 6 of each is the most. They are larger cars and easy to spot on a dealers table. Because of when they were made their scale is more half O scale as the original concept of HO trains was. You see it in the size of the Early 1930's and 40's Gilbert trains.

* I'll try to get my collection here is photos around 700 X 400 bits. First I'll copy all my Revell car photos into a new folder and resize each to this medium size for easy posting and good viewing.

Now comes the open hopper car. also to come is the closed hopper car.
frank

C&O 4040


N&W 4042


CB&Q 4044


This is The Revell operation hopper also CB&Q 4044 like the last one posted. You could buy a ramp and unloader for it. this assessory came both with and without the car. Gilbert also made a operating hopper that would use the same unloader ramp. It was a black C&O #35785. It was slightly different with different railings .

There are 3 pulpwood cars made by train set companies. Revel, Triang-ATT, and Tyco. All are nice ! I don't remember Bachmann making one. Bachmann had a 40' flat with bulkhead ends but a pipe load. I got a few of them someplace. Off hand I don't remember any more pulpwood cars. There were many log caring cars. Athearn made a 60' flat car with bulkhead ends but did not make a pulpwood load. Other companies made a assessory pulpwood load for a 60' flat car that fit the Athearn car.

I never wanted a Revell SW7 because the drives were unreliable . Especially the last ones made. I found a UP SW7 with what I guess is the first drive used. I never had one of these so I got it.
