Two 7.5" ga. Ride-Inside Boxcars
7.5" gauge 2" scale "Ride-In" box cars. I
picked these 2 boxcars up from a friend who wants me to list
them for him. They are heavy gauge steel and seem to be built
well. The smaller car (4 foot) seats one and the other (6 foot)
has seating for four (facing each other). I would think they
were built for kids as you sit inside the car. He is asking $500
each with 7.5" gauge aluminum trucks. Both cars were just
sandblasted as he was going to add detail hardware and repaint
them but decided he doesn't have the time or energy. He believes
they were built in the late 60's and he has had them since the
mid 90's. He said the trucks will need some work as they ran ok
but he said they seem loose. No couplers.
$500 each. The cars are located 20 minutes
South of Cleveland, Ohio and available for pickup there. They
could probably be crated and shipped but that would be at the
7.5" ga. Davenport Switcher
This is a gas powered 7.5" ga. Davenport
that has a belt driven transmission (forward and reverse). There
is a new 6.5 HP engine installed and 2 handles, one for engaging
the belt and one for forward, neutral and reverse selection. The
output shaft from the transmission has a chain drive to one axle
and the axles are connected via visible eccentrics and side
rods. The frame is comprised of steel and aluminum stock with
removable pedestal binders for each axle and wood front and rear
bumpers. The body is steel bracing with aluminum panels that are
removable for accessing the engine/drive bays. Both left and
right sides have hinged panels in the front that allows quick
access to the transmission and chain drive components.
This project was assembled but never tested
or run by the original builder. I have started the engine and
ran it on a test stand and noticed the side rods have an
adjustable eccentrics that will need adjustment/rework as there
seemed to be some binding as the wheels rotate. Overall it has
the capability of being a fun little runner and a great beginner
project. It is available in the Cleveland , Ohio area. It is
available for local pickup but could be crated and shipped at
I picked this project up with intentions of
completing in the future but have to many other things that need
my focus so it must go.
$1,150. Buyer pays for crating & shipping
costs. Cleveland, Ohio.
