The H0-Scale smooth side passenger cars were described by Tenshodo as “flush side cars”. These cars had originally been made for the D-1A passenger train set which was meant for the Japanese market alone. Of course, the cars (and locomotives) found their way to the North American market for many years.
As with the corrugated side H0 cars, there were eight car types offered:
- Full baggage
- Combination baggage & coach
- Dining Car
- Sleeping Car
- Vista-Dome Observation
The production number information comes from “Pacific Fast Mail... 25 Years of Fine Models” by Phil and Ruth Kohl (Craftsman Press, 1979).
