American Models Budd Passenger Car Set

The same day I found out I wasn’t going to get my FM Trainmaster I ordered a Budd passenger car set in SP Daylight colors along with the extra coach. I didn’t really know what to expect but I needed something to put behing my River Raisin MT-5 that’s painted in the Daylight scheme. I’d never seen any of American Models’ products in person, and I was thinking they’d probably be pretty “toy-like.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I was a little worried they might not look all that great behind the highly detailed River Raisin brass locomotive. I didn’t need to worry…

The cars came yesterday (fast shipping!!!) which was the first surprise. Second was the box they came in – instead of the flimsy little card stock box with a cellophane window that’s typical of most toy train products, the cars came in very heavy duty boxes that were finished and printed very nicely. The best way I can describe the quality of the packaging is that it’s equal to the packaging on every high end brass model I’ve ever bought. The best surprise was when I opened the box – these passenger cars are nice. They’re going to look great behind my MT-5.
