|New Haven 65x Style Passenger Sets|
|The #650 and #651 cars were used in a lot of sets and are very common. Each of the sets contained two 650 coaches and a 651 REA baggage car, in either red or green.|
have the #4803A Atlantic Passenger set made in 1950. It had green
cars pulled a #302AC Reading Atlantic steam engine. This set was
first made in 1948, pulled by a #302 Reading Atlantic engine.
The following sets also had green cars:
The #4603 Atlantic Passenger set, Gilbert's first passenger train, made in 1946-1947 It was pulled by a #300 Reading Atlantic steam engine.
The very rare #4604 set made in 1946, pulled by a #301 Reading Atlantic steam engine.
#5003T made in 1950 pulled by a #290 Pacific steam engine.
|The following sets had red cars:
#4608 made in 1946 pulled by a #310 Pennsy Pacific steam engine.
The #4609 set made in 1946-1947 comprised the red #651 baggage car and two red #650 New Haven Coaches pulled by a #312 Pennsylvania Railroad steam engine.
The #4609A set made in 1948-1949 was the same as the #4609 but was pulled by a Pennsylvania Railroad Pacific steam engine, some the #312 and some the #312AC.
The following sets were shown with green cars in the catalog, but some sets were made with red cars:
#5103WT made in 1951 pulled by a #295 Pacific steam engine.
#5103WT made in 1952 pulled by a #285 C&NW Pacific steam engine.
None of my books tell which color cars were in the following sets; I presume that means they were made with both colors.
#5103T made in 1952 pulled by a #285 C&NW Pacific steam engine.
