Tinplate - 3-Car No. 1695 Passenger Set - Blue/Silver

Tinplate - 3-Car No. 1695 Passenger Set - Blue/Silver

Tinplate collectors have often dubbed the 1616 passenger set as one of the most attractive O Gauge tinplate passenger sets ever offered. Produced during the Ives transition years of the early 1930's, the cars would have been a welcome complement to the O Gauge Blue Comet locomotives traditionally configured with 600 series passenger cars. Despite their attractive looks, these cars were never cataloged again and instead became relegated to the occasional uncataloged special.

The most famous of these sets sported a beige cab and red roof and chassis and included the 1695, 1696 and 1697 cars. Other paint schemes included blue bodies with silver roofs and undercarriages as well as dark red bodies, roofs and undercarriages.

Tinplate - Two-Tone Brown 3-Car Std. Gauge State Set

Tinplate - Two-Tone Brown 3-Car Std. Gauge State Set

n the late 1920s and early 1930s, the standard gauge tinplate passenger cars, known as "State Cars," were among the best and most detailed mass-produced toy trains ever built. European manufacturers of the same time frame were the only producers of comparable cars. Selling for as much as one hundred dollars even in the heart of the depression, the original standard gauge State car sets were valued possessions for anyone lucky enough to own one.

First produced in 1929, each car featured hinged roofs, lighted interiors, multiple layered window treatments, rotating seats, lavatories, even working toilet lids! Measuring 21 inches long and standing 7 inches high, each car weighed almost 6 pounds and came trimmed in brass. Brightly painted and highly prized, State Cars are among the most valued toy trains in the world.
