Mantua 1890 Passenger Car
By gunslinger_fur April 17, 2013
I have a few of these passenger cars in various road names. They have a nice level of detail for what they are, plastic models. They disassemble easily and are prime bases for kitbashers and fine detail modelers like myself. The wood siding detail of the cars is nice and crisp. The proportions of the car(s) match or are similar to passenger stock from this time period, the 1890s. Although these cars are more appropriate on small short-line railroads or railroads with sharp curves. These cars are about 34 feet in length, where as most railroads had cars closer to 50 feet in length. The trucks are nicely detailed even though they are made from plastic. And they portray the correct type of trucks used on period equipment. However I am not fond of the truck mounted couplers. My personal preference is for body mounted couplers. Although, truck mounted couplers allow for a tighter turning radius. Another thing I have noticed is that the cars seem to ride a little high. I simply filed the bolsters on the car underside a little to correct this. Overall though these are great little cars to have if you are one who models the later half of the 1800s.
