Excellent link Dave. John Deere currently makes PARTS for railroad equipment, although they do not manufacture any locomotives or railcars.

John Deere may have built rail cars in the past, but current production is Railroad Engine's & Drivetrain.

Thank you, Dave.

And I corrected an error in my previous post. There  really are Caterpillar flatcars, but I cannot find photos of actual John Deere railcars of any type.

It sounds like you are at the next stage of the train hobby: Build & Bash......
Fortunately/Unfortunately we do get to the stage where we want a "long out of production or a Never Was" train of piece of rollingstock.
And the ONLY was we're going to get it, is to build or bash...
There are lots of donor/inexpensive pieces of rolling stock to test your build/bash skills upon to get what you want.
IF YOU BUILD IT, YOU'LL HAVE IT....

Happy Rails...

Lionel used to make a very nice-looking Caterpillar steam locomotive set. I found a photo of someone's HO Caterpillar train set, and I found a plastic Caterpillar train set.

I cannot find any real-life Caterpillar trains except that there actually are Caterpillar flatcars for carrying their products.

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!

To some collectors, the box is as important or more importanat than the contents.
Not being a Box Collector they usually get consigned to the bonfire by me.
You can post them  in the For Sale/Trade sub forum to see if you get any bites.
If no interest is shown here, l would suggest offering them on one of the online auction sites.

Happy Rails!

Prewar Lionel Trains 1900-1942 / Re: 602 Baggage Car

The 600 series tin plate cars are a set l wouldn't mind having.
Tho there are plenty of photo's available of the 602, an owner manual is scarce.
Production dates l have found are 1933 to 1942.{no guarantee on dating}

Link to the REAL 600 series cars:

Sorry l can't offer more help other than to tell you to continue your online hunt for information.

Happy Rails!

I am going thru my uncles basement and he has empty Lionel boxes. We are cleaning his basement and he has told me to see if anyone is looking for the boxes for a far price. I will be going back out there Tuesday Fed. 23 I will make a list and get photos to post. Please let me know if you are interested.

Does anybody have information of the 602 baggage car.  I am trying to get an exploded view and history of the car.  I recently acquired a 602 and would like information for my inventory list.  TX

Thanks. All metal. I see ones on the internet that look the same but no brass I'd plate on the top in the middle.
