I remember seeing a set like that in the store window of a shop I used to frequent in Kenmore, NY back in the early 1970's. IIRC it was six cars selling for $30.00. I was modeling in N "gauge" at the time, but I was sorely tempted to put a down payment on it to later use it on my cousin's HO layout just because they looked so cool. Well, at least it looked cool to 12 year old me at the time.

Henry you should see how bright the interior lighting is on these cars. You can run them in a unlite room and lite the room up. frank

Frank,
Those aluminum cars remind of the Herkimer/OK shorties I have.

Pete ;
* Herkimer passenger cars are light weights next to these. You really need a engine, that can pull, to yank these cars around the track. Dont forget a very good power pack.  
* Also do you see the color of the light giver off by the cars. It is white light. I wish these bulbs were still made today. The filament isn't tungsten, for that gives off a yellow light.
* I should not have said what I did in the first paragraph. I never really weighed them. I have a set of Kusan aluminum passenger car. They are the Herkimer OK passenger cars.

Try this for your lighting needs http://www.trainaidsa.com/shop-leds.shtml .  Search for 'S12 - 12v Lighting Strip'.

** A boxed Lima Playart, passenger set. I think is a German prototype.
 The past owner did a terrible paint job on the locomotive.
edit to add this :
 ** One thing about these 3 passenger cars. One of them was missed by Lima quality control for the only lettering on it is the number 2's. The DB centered in the red section and the lettering across the bottom black was not applied.

* Pete;  This is very interesting. The first floodlight is a mini little wonder. But pricy at $10. each. The C5 and CR5 lamps are confusing. Which is a direct replacement for Athearn diesel  locomotives. It looks like the lamp Athearn uses. The E10 threaded base looks like the lamp mantua used all those years in there steam engines. Is the thread and polarity correct for US locomotives. The E5 is a very small lamp. I wouldn't  have much use for it. There seem to be ones to use in car lighting. This is a link to hold on to.

Frank,
I have used the passenger light strips.  They also work nicely in buildings.
The C5, for instance, is sent with a resistor, so that the bulb can be used up to 19V--beyond  the 3.5-5 volt limit, it has w/o resistor.  You would have to wire in the resistor.  Instructions for this are referenced with the package/shipping notice.
Some of the bulbs have built in resistors.  If you click on the item picture, it provides more info.  
I would write them for any direct replacement questions you have.

** does anyone remember the American Train and Track co. ATT. Here is a set they released in the 1960's. It has their 0-4-0 brass, switcher with slope back tender and three old time Central Pacific RR passenger cars.

* A.C.Gilbert, American Flyier, Northern pacific passenger cars. I think there is a passenger car without a dome and maybe a dinner. I am not sure. I would like to get them if someone wishes to part with them.

We have several steam locos that could probably fit the bill for a mail train, even several E units could probably suffice...
 
I had two other cars in mind for potential revenue service. Both are fairly well detailed, have independently sprung trucks, and aren't something I would take a band saw to for kitbashing.
