New York Central Pullman Set
Gilbert's #4613 set, made in 1946 and 1947,  had the 322 Hudson locomotive and the rare long-truck painted Pullman cars.  The #4613A, made only in 1948, had the 322AC Hudson locomotive and the somewhat less rare (but still very hard to find!) short-truck painted Pullmans.  What I have is a cross between the two: the 322 with the short-truck Pullmans.

I got the 654 painted observation car as a kid and have wanted to complete the set for over fifty years.  In September of 2004, I finally succeeded!
#653 Combination Car
The first of two #652 coaches
The other #652 coach
This is the #654 observation car I got as a kid.
I got this #654 observation car with the set, but mine is in better condition and has sentimental value.
