Re: Throwback Tuesday: The Lindberg Line

I believe that Mantua got the Lindberg line so now that it has morphed through Model Power and MRC to Lionel we will have to await yet another attempt at releasing dated tooling to see them again. Maybe the Marx tooling they also got with the Model Power acquisition will be a higher priority…after all, they at least had a searchlight car!!!
Seriously, Mantua and Model Power did run the Lindberg tooling so some of the cars might be available….not sure if that is what they used for the “Heavies” line of diecast metal cars…just to prevent any kitbashing!!!

The reefer has short doors like a meat reefer. Some 30 or more years ago I picked up 4 or 5 at a swap and did some simple upgrades…consistent with my limited knowledge at the time…and turned them into Armour (TRAX) cars. They would be considered stand-ins, I’m sure, by todays standards but they are still in regular use in my sessions.
