Lionel #68 Inspection Car (Desoto wagon)

Inspection Car

This Inspection Car was part of Daddy's trains and was the only thing with his trains in excellent condition. We had obviously never played with it on our layout in the '50s. I got it running good and played with it some and understand why. it stops on switches and has little play value.

MTH 30-2508 Operating Hand Cars

MTH Hand Cars

These hand cars are great runners and the bumper mechanism trips an interior slide switch.  When I set them up to bump against each it wouldn't work so I extended the bumper trips with 3 wire conductor cable and clear silicone wedged into place.  (Note "droopy" extension on left.)
