Older style wood passenger cars

Post by wbarbe » Thu May 13, 2021 5:35 pm

Does anyone know a company that produces older style wood passenger cars? Something that would be appropriate for a 1800’s train?
I thought Railroad Supply used to offer something like this but I see it’s no longer on the catalog. Also looking for trucks.
Thanks
Bill

Jackson & Sharpe ?

What scale?
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Guess that would help. 1 1/2 scale.
Thanks

Discoverlivesteam.com sells a Jackson & Sharp in 7.x gauge

Done by accucraft

Look under buy & sell > rolling stock

Never seen one only pictures.

Is this sort of what you are looking for?

Sorry, it's 12 inches to the foot

The Accucraft cars are 2 1/2 scale. They are metal made to look like wood. I have seen them. They look nice but too big for me
