MTH is proud to reintroduce a new generation of O Gauge tinplate lovers to the classic looks of the 800 series freight car. First introduced in 1926, the 800 series was quite popular. Like their other Lionel Corporation Tinplate series bretheren, the 800 series cars are constructed entirely of stamped metal components. Each car features black oxide finished trucks, truck journal boxes and box couplers for that authentic look and feel of yesteryear. Equally at home behind the MTH 260E, 263E or any other large O Gauge locomotive, these stunningly attractive freight cars add color and variety to any O Gauge layout or Christmas Garden.
