I'm moving this here so it doesn't get lost. I have found photographic evidence using auctions, private owners, etc to document the existence of these cars. I did NOT rely on catalog images. CATALOG IMAGES are/were not considered as reliable. All cars might not be in the photo link from my Imgur account, but I'm adding to it.

I've got the Rhode Island car. Does anyone want me to post the cars that I have? These state cars have some of the most brilliant complementary/contrasting colors that Mantua/Tyco used.

From the Keystone State.



I brought the Mantua car to Jim Thorpe Pennyslvania to photograph it in its home state.

Could you please post pictures of the South Dakota and Wyoming Cars. They are mostly likely factory proto-types, and were not produced for general sale.

The Delaware and Rhode Island are hard to find, but they were produced.

I cannot technically verify the South Dakota and Wyoming cars. Another respected member of this forum stated that they had seen them in the wild, so I took that as gospel.

I remember an ebay auction for the Delaware car. It was probably 10 years ago, it went for over 100 dollars. Only one I've seen. I have 37 of the cars, missing most of the same ones marked as need evidence.

I saw a Delaware car about 4 years ago and dropped out of the bidding after it crossed the $75 mark. The car ended up going for around $150.

Starting to grow on me, these things. Interesting Abe Lincoln.

Have you been to Albuquerque lately? Duke City needs to be renamed, the Puke City. Needs a new state slogan: Land of Encampment. City parks crammed with the deinstitutionalized. The Meth State, might be good.

I've been trying to buy it myself. I never had a FB account, so created one and was searching for the boxcars when all of a sudden a screen popped up stating that my account (just created) was being suspended due to not following the FB "rules." Next, the system asked me to upload my drivers license or other official photo id. Really! This is just another way for FB to track people. I wish there was another way to buy items on FB without jumping through their "rules" hoop.

Been on FB for many years. This is the first time I've ever heard of this. I've also never been in the "Facebook jail" so many claim to be in. Makes me wonder what people are doing that gets them in trouble.

Looking through ebay listings, it appears that Train Miniature also offered state boxcars but they seem to ne limited to the original 13 colonies, Lifelike also offered State boxcars, reefers and gondolas but I don't know what the extent of those series were. This sounds like the top of a slippery slope.

eaglerock109,

Were you able to buy those cars?

All,
My FB account was *finally* restored without further documentation required, but there are no Mantua 711 boxcars on FB that I can find. FMI, is it necessary for me to keep changing the 500 mile radius location in order to search another part of the county? This is very time consuming. Thx.

There are many listed on Ebay right now. Somewhere in there should be the Delaware car.

Although there are a bunch of Mantua state boxcars currently on eBay, none of them are the Delaware car. I do have a saved search on eBay for this car and have not seen it yet.
