These passenger coaches are plastic and in excellent condition,they are an estate find and I don't know a lot about it. (In reviewing these listings I find the red cars have washed out areas in the photos which are not there in the cars) There is wiring underneath so I assume they are lighted. The boxes are in good condition with minor wear and loose or missing end flaps. Feel free to ask questions, I will try to answer. Prompt payment is greatly appreciated. Most items paid befor noon are mailed the same day. We use USPS Priority mail.
