A few days ago, I picked up two of these Nutcracker coaches. These are the first of the Lionel General passenger cars with the clerestory roof. When I got them, they were fresh out of the set, and had silver painted archbar trucks. I had some wood beam trucks without couplers that I modified by mounting the stock archbar truck couplers to them.
Let me know what you think. I'll be making more changes to these cars, in time. Feel free to offer suggestions.
Nice find Roy. Are you planing on converting one of them to become the Lilly Belle Car. I wish they made more realistic models of Walts Trains also in O scale. That would be nice since I use O scale but so far, anything thats Disney in O scale is mostly kid looking stuff except for a few rare collecter pecies like the Rare made Disneyland 35th Anniversary engine which Lionel made in 1990 that was Lionels version of the C K Holiday.
