Re: Throwback Tuesday: Varney Metal Freight Car Kits

Lee Thwaits asked:
"My first kits were Varney wood & cardboard & Mantua metal.  When did Varney switch to metal?"

A check of Varney catalogs at HO Seeker shows the wood and cardboard kits (with stamped metal doors and ends and embossed sides) still listed in the 1948 catalog, but the 1950 catalog shows the metal kits.
