Re: Wine Cars

Does anyone make 50's era decals or transfers for SLRX cars? Or
does Sunshine make a kit? One 4000 series car shows up in a photo of
the Milwaukee's "Roller Coaster Track" from early 50's. Considering
that Schlitz and AB were competitors, either the Milwaukee brewery was
catering their business parties with "Brand X", or they were making
good use of a homeward bound empty, even if it DID represent a
competitor.
I've looked in Champ, MS, Oddballs, CDS, etc., and can't find a
set. I don't have the catalog from Clover House, though.

Thanks,
Phil Buchwald
