Above, the lot of 151 Kris shells, boxcar frames and several new unmarked car boxes as received! Below, an original shipping carton. I received many of the cars in this box, with a UPS label affixed to its top! Initial inspection and inventory revealed about 30 different car variations, including some not documented in Greenberg Volume II. All of these cars are know pictured on the website for your information and enjoyment. These cars are about 30 years old; new / old stock.
I received the following information from the collector who originally purchased this lot:
"These items came from the estate of a gentleman who was a personal friend of Andy Kriswalus. I acquired the train collection from this estate earlier this year. He bought large quantities of Kris products beginning in about 1968 or '69 and continuing through the mid to late 70's. He bought everything in quantity! This included 'O' and 'S' overruns, parts, and unassembled cars such as those you purchased, all of which was intended for a layout that never materialized. I do know with certainty that these unfinished cars came directly from Kris Model Trains and were untouched from the time of shipment until earlier this year."
