This two pack story is just now being told, 17 years after its release.


Released December 2005

These two cars were sold in a sealed (wrapped) two pack. One car Rd#68237. The other car #68205 has a graffiti Rocky in a Santa hat. He has a pen, and pointing (as Rocky does) at his work, showing he remarked Western Fruit Express to Western Fruit ‘cake’ Express. This Santa Rocky was sold face down in the wrapped package. Thus an unopened pack does not even know of what awaits on the opposite side!

The label indicates this is official ‘American Fruit Packer Series, GN 10.5′, meaning it was released between release #10 and #11, (hence 10.5).

See close up photo here also shows the circle AFP marking on the bottom sill of these cars.

Numbers for these cars are assigned: NSC# 05-133  &  NSC# 05-134

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…
