set #466 " The Frontiersman". This set appears in two of HObbylines catalogs for 1955. This is a Western Pacific railroad powered set using 8 wheel drive, Alco Twin FA-1 diesels. THIS IS NOT FOR SALE . As a member of this vintage HO site I am just adding some information. Within the set are one of each type of freight car that HObbyline produced. This is the only set, where my information says, was released with one box car , one tank car, one gondola, one flat car, and one hopper. The caboose has the company name on it for they never made a Western Pacific ready to run caboose. Cars in the set are gondola- DSS&A road (Dilute, South Shore, and Atlantic RR), Flat with load, Pennsylvania RR, Hopper, Western Maryland, Box car, GAEX ( General American Equipment exchange), tank car Union 76. and Caboose HObbyline in white lettering. This the box it was sold in, in around 1955.
