Plasticville
Posted by traindaddy1 on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 9:20 PM

Hello: Never gave this a thought but recently my neighbor, who knows that I've had Plasticville for years, asked me how I could tell if a sedan was an original or if it was a modern reissue. (O scale)

Aside from the colors (I know the current ones) I couldn't say.

I tried to do a computer search (like Tandom Associates) but could not find a definitive answer.

Would you know?   As always, many thanks.

The Platicville Collectors Association, PCA, has moved to a free site.

Check here https://www.plasticvilleusa.org/ . That site should have much of the info you need.

Oh great.  Just great.

NOW I find out there's real Plasticville and fake Plasticville.  Something else to worry about.

I just never ends.  Bang Head
