All About Postage Stamp Trains
4864: Ore Cars

Prototype Information

There were dozens of different styles of ore cars, a.k.a. jennies, and were used by many railroads. The one Roco chose to produce would seem to be a composite of several similar-looking variations dating from the 1950s. Many of these tough little cars are still in use today, albeit frequently patched, repaired and modified; likewise, the models are still being churned out.
