A couple of weeks ago I acquired some really nice 85' modern passenger cars that came from an estate sale (7 cars, Atlantic Coast Line). They had no markings on them as to manufacturer? They appear to be of a very high quality, and are already set up for lighting via their truck pic-ups.

I inquired with a few other modelers that seemed to be pretty sure they were Walthers brand, and that often Walters cars did not had a brand printed on their bottoms, as Walthers has many different manufacturers produce product for themselves??

3 of these cars have figures (passengers) in them. Did any of the 'stock' passenger cars have such?

Since these did NOT come in boxes, I'm unsure as to what exact subcategory of the Walthers line they might be from? I'm trying to determine a value as I may wish to sell them off due to my fondness for B&O, C&O, and Santa Fe.

Long ago I had some Concor passenger cars that had molded bottoms somewhat similar to these, and at first I thought they might be some 'upgraded' Concor cars. But they are far superior to those.

Not that I would know the answer, but it seems that photos might help your cause.

I don't recall any Walthers cars in the past 15-20 years that came with passenger figures.

This is a Walthers HO SP Southern Pacific 85' Budd 46 Seat Coach Chair car. Does it look like one of yours??? As far as figures go, they may have been added by previous owner. Or, who knows Walthers may have done something different and added then to a line of cars. Just my opinion and thoughts here.
