        GN 2-6-8-0. frank here !

        Nice 4 cars. Only one I have is the beer car. I guess like you when I looked for them I would get the beer cars first. Then run out of money and go home. Also the about the outside braced box cars. A lot were made but you dont see many at the shows. I only have 2. Again I guess at the shows when confronted with a choice, I always bought the colorfull reefer or box car

                Nice walk down memory lane. My dad has a pretty large number of TM cars. I remember being with him when he purchased them, mostly at long gone hobby shops in Northern New Jersey but sometimes at shows.

                The Ballantine car is a favorite, but it would be considering that beer was brewed in New Jersey.

                            I think this is a Train Miniature car. My wife's name is Olimpia (different spelling), so I slightly back-dated an Olympia beer reefer for my 1890s era layout:



                            dave

                            p.s. That's "natural weathering" on the top of that car, it was on the layout when I was doing some really nasty dirty stuff, and needs to be cleaned and properly weathered.

                              Dave ; Your Oli'e is a life like body on a MDC frame. The queen posts truss rods and fox trucks look very Model Die Casting to me.

                              Here is my life-like car

                                The frame is actually 'scratchbuilt', and needs some more work (at least a brake casting.)
