Items Made in Japan
TRICO
Catalog # Item GradePhotoPriceDetails
??? Set of Railroad Figures E++/OB Yes $ 85 Seven (7) composition Railroad Figures that were made in Japan -- possibly from the late '30s or early '40s: later version with the figures on oval bases.
Another view of the figures & inside of the station.
The set includes five railroad workers: an Oiler (carrying an oil can and dressed in a blue uniform), a Conductor (dressed in black), a Red Cap carrying two bags and a set of golf clubs (and dressed in a dark-gray uniform, a Porter carrying a cloth and a foot stool (and dressed in a bright-blue uniform) and a Policeman (armed with a gun and a Billy Club and dressed in the traditional dark-blue uniform). The set also has two passengers: a male Businessman (dressed in a red tie and a light-gray overcoat) and a well-to-do Woman (dressed in a leopard coat and carrying a red purse).

A few small paint chips here and there but that's it for flaws! All of the figures are in at least E++ condition and some are in LIKE NEW condition as it appears that they were never removed from the box!

Photo of the inner box and the outer box.
Grade 6 original inner (Station) box (missing the upper portion of the left side; tears; creases; separated; some of the red Cellophane from the windows is missing).
Photo of the back of the inner box (station).
Even with the flaws, the station is very presentable as the clock is complete and all seven original elastic tie down bands are present plus no repairs have been made.
Photo of the inside of the outer box.
Grade 6 original outer box (tears; creases; stains; tape).
Photo of the end of the outer box showing the "TRICO" identification.
A few flaws but the box is fairly clean, complete, square and sturdy.

Each figure is approximately 3 1/2 inches high and the underside of each base is stamped "JAPAN" in caps. The designs for six of these figures were apparently copied from the metal Lionel #550 "Miniature Railroad Figures" set sold from 1932 to 1936 while the design of the Policeman was probably copied from the Barclay Policeman.

A very, very nice set of figures in a very rare box!
??? Set of Railroad Figures Ranges
from

Fair
to
Excellent
Yes $ 25 Seven (7) composition Railroad Figures that were made in Japan -- probably in the mid '30s: earlier version with the figures on square bases.
Photo of the Conductor and the Engineer.
The Conductor is in VG condition with some paint loss but he is completely intact; the base is mildly distorted. The Engineer is in VG condition with some paint chips but he is completely intact.
Photo of the Red Cap and the Porter.
The Red Cap is in Good condition with some chips and paint loss; the base is distorted and the figure leans a little. The Porter is in Excellent condition with very few flaws.
Photo of the Female Passenger, Policeman and Male Passenger.
The Female Passenger is in Excellent condition with some minor paint chips and a possible repair. The Policeman is in Good condition (missing the Billy club and some paint chips). The Male Passenger apparently stayed too long in the club car wooing the female passenger and looks like he had a rough night; he is in Fair condition with lots of chips and paint loss.

Each figure is approximately 3 1/2 inches high and the underside of each base is stamped "JAPAN" in caps. The designs for six of these figures were apparently copied from the metal Lionel #550 "Miniature Railroad Figures" set sold from 1932 to 1936 while the design of the Policeman was probably copied from the Barclay Policeman.
File photo showing the Lionel Version.

A very interesting and very unusual item from "The Far East" made during a time when that area of the world was gearing up for war!
