Re: Ps-0 boxcars
Anthony Wenzel Enterprises = AWE
Oriental was sold to Challenger (Albert Ichelson)
AWE imported not-quite-exact copies of a number of Shoreham Shops brass passenger cars
from Samhongsa. This was around the time that Samhongsa was successfully sued by Lionel
and maybe MTH for using their designs to produce models for other importers, which ended
up bankrupting Samhongsa. Shoreham Shops morphed into Rail Classics (change of owners
or something else?) but I don't know if it was related to this mess.
The only AWE freight car I know about is the 1930's welded Pullman Standard box car.
