We "bench tested" the truck and caboose and the sounds and lights all work perfectly! The truck requires two "C" batteries; the caboose will light when placed on powered train layout track

Items Made in Japan
TRICO
Catalog # Item GradePhotoPriceDetails
??? 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!
