Varney was one of the most known names in early HO model railroading. Gordon Varney was visionary in early business years. When HO was just gaining in popularity in the late 1930s, Varney sold all of his successful 'O' gauge moldings and casting to concentrate exclusively on HO gauge. Judging from the style of kit, this one is from the 1930s. Features very neatly precut and shaped roof, floor board and ends cut to final shape, other stripwood as needed, metal ladders and fittings, some very early style injection molded parts (such as ice hatches), other metal parts and stock as needed, very colorful and highly detailed embossed car sides done in bright orange PFE with the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific logos (correct for this car and kit), and brown embossed car ends. There is a sealed bag that contains the freight car trucks and the small parts are still factory sealed as well. The kit has not been started. Most parts are still sealed and all others have been inventoried complete. The plans are excellent and include instructions. The car sides and end are in as-new condition.
