** Here is an old plastic radial roof passenger that was sold as a kit.  
* I have a 1957 AHC catalog and these passenger cars are there on two pages, 23 and 28. They were sold by a trail line named "Trail-Blazers". Made by a company named "Advanced Molding Corp". They made singularly and in sets all their cars. A 4-4-0 General, Passenger car, Mail car,  box car, gondola, and a unique 4 wheel caboose. I don't have all the cars. Missing baggage and Combine cars. Back in the day, long ago, box cars were called House cars. They also were built as 4 wheel, and 8 wheel cars.

** Here is the Mail Car. An old fashion combine. It also has a radial roof. 4 different cars were made. The coach and the mail car you see here. Then a Baggage and I think a combine completed the 4 cars.

Mantua - Tyco Also produced radial roofed passenger cars. There were two types. Combine car and Passenger car. They were called 1860 cars.  
 
This is the 1860 Combine. Central Pacific colors by Tyco.

This is my Tyco Central Pacific 1870 passenger train set, at the train platform for my old Frankford station. A CP 4-8-0 pulls a combine and coach of the radial Roof type.

* A great old locomotive to make is the B&O Hayes 10 wheeler. #198 is drawn here on page 361.
 
https://books.google.com/books?id=zP46AAAAMAAJ&pg=PA361#v=onepage&q=Winans%20Camel%20Engine%20&f=false
 
* Now long ago I made one using a Tyco 4-6-0 as a starting point. I replaced the drivers with Varney ones from an Old Lady 2-8-0. I re-drilled the third axel to make their spacing all equal. The body was built over a Tyco 4-6-0 boiler to make sure of a perfect fit. The tender is reworked with a fireman's platform and shelter added. I kept in my collection for over 10 years. It is gone now. Only some old photos remain.

Do you remember the TYCO old time sets? This is the "Petticoat Junction" set from the TV series.
The C&FW Railroad locomotive is named "Hootervile Cannonball".

"Iron Horse" was a Dale Robertson TV series.

* But there also was a movie Iron Horse before the TV series. I think it was about the Central Pacific Railroad and the building of the First railroad to cross the continent. With Tyco making sets named after TV shows, you are probably right that they named it after the TV show.
