Passenger cars. (under translation)

In this article I describe passenger cars which existed and still exist in the United States of America. I also list the HO models of these passenger cars. Not every model is still in production, and this list is far from complete, but will be updated regularly. At the moment this list is made up from my personal model train collection.

All models listed are direct current, 2 rail.

The table is wider then your screen resolution, so You notice a scrollbar. This simplifies reading the table.

Information I have received from other people is written in red. Photo's used with permission and a copyright are linked to the owner's website or email address.
