Can anybody make out what the placard says on the door?  It blurs out on my phone when it try and zoom in.

Here is the builders photo that was used to model this car. It was stripped off my last text.

Thanks Charlie, excellent photos!


>The Fe-U does not have the massive underframe. (see photo) They were also not painted off white but the builders photo was for better visibility of the construction. All the cars were delivered in the normal mineral brown with white lettering. See photos.

Steve I had exactly the same thought. And wouldn't a Santa Fe auto box of
that era have a massive fishbelly underframe?



Could it be scratch built or kit bashed?  The underframe appears to be Athearn, with the snap on coupler covers.  The ends look like the old stamped metal ones.  The hat section framing and sides look like wood shapes and sheets.  I remember the wrap around metal roof ribs, too.

I can't seem to get ebay to show me closed auctions anymore.  Is this normal?

Feebay just sold a HO  wooden kit (built)  that seems to be  a fair copy of an Fe-U. Who made this, I'd like to get a couple.  Thanks,  Bill Woelfel
