Cars will need to be cleaned and lubed. Please be very careful when unpacking as these models have very small parts, if you are new to this hobby don't expect to place these brass trains on a track and see them go around fast, they must be lubed and cleaned, they are a lost art.
These passenger cars have an interesting history:
Crash on the Stanislaus switchbacks, 1905. The Sierra No. 5 & 6 were involved in a crash on the switchbacks while descending the Stanislaus River canyon. The brakes were not working properly due to slippery tracks. The conductor was calling for all passengers to jump from the train. Two people would not jump and were killed in the crash, and both cars required extensive repairs.
Sierra No. 5 & 6 at Jamestown. No. 6 is a full passenger coach, while No. 5 is a combine car – a combination of coach and baggage/mail car. No. 6 was used on the Hetch Hetchy Railroad circa 1936 and is part of the original Railway & Locomotive Historical Society collected curated by the California State Railroad Museum.
