Re: Who manufactured this car?

Daniel A. Mitchell

Similar seam-caps were offered in several kit lines, and they were available as separate detail parts. Some were made of brass and some from thin sheet steel.

The general constuction is simialr to both Silver Streak and Ulrich kits of the period, but the car’s proportions don’t look like either. There were many other companies offering similar kits too. The riveted corner posts are unusual.

I built a Silver Streak kit years ago with similar seam caps on the roof.

Looking for some help identifying the manufacturer of this model.  The model has wood sides and ends, has white metal bolsters, and has brass pieces that act as roof cross braces (not sure what to call them) and brass z-braces for vertical and diagonal side supports.  I purchased this model many years ago and it has been operating on my layout.  I would like to learn something about it.  Thanks
