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 am speechless!  The AFT Showcase car is everything I hoped it would be; and more.


The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.

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!
