The yellow UP paint style car looks like one of the old Penn Line or Varney coaches that eventually became Life-Like.  I have three of those coaches-two are Penn Line in undecroated green and the third is a LL "Scene Master" line that will become an LV coach.  Right now it's in the old Milwaukee orange with the maroon stripe.
 
I don't know what I am going to do with the Penn Line cars.  They are not in the best of shape.
 
Have a good one.

That was my reasoning for kitbashing them into engineering dept. cars. They lack detail, are clearly not high end cars, and some have missing parts. Maintenance of way cars are almost always beaten up, worn out, and usually modified from their original purpose, Conrail's Conway yard derrick boom tender being one of my favorite examples. They took an old Pullman heavyweight and cut half of it down to the frame, leaving room for tools and inside storage, plus a deck for whatever was needed for a derailment (wheels, trucks, rigging, blocking, etc.)

 Now for some American made passenger cars. These are made by EB Valley and Alco models. Not sure which company did them first.  
* Pennsylvania railroad coaches.

Frank,
I may not have seen all of them, but I've been on this topic for quite awhile, and have posted some of mine.  Remember the UP La Belle Heavyweights?

Hey Frank,
I didn't say anything about not wanting to see anymore of your cars.  I enjoy seeing them.

The Princess Royale and the setup is great looking.
 
By the way, when I saw this on eBay 160894233035, I thought of you.
It's listed in the Bachmann category, but this is certainly old Life-Like.

You're right, of course. I kept trying to think of the name.  I have a number of Tyco's sets.

Hello Frank,
Here's a picture of my recent Walthers New Haven heavyweights and I-5 Hudson.  An observation and a ACL through dining car.  These have lighting and passengers/diners.
Unfortunately, not very clear.

And here's my new Con-Cor 72' 'St Louis' Wabash, smooth sides.  These did not have lighting or interiors.
I added that, by cutting and fitting IHC interior kits. The Dining car now has fully set tables and figures, a kitchen, and toilet compartments at the kitchen end.  The observation has rear seating and sleeping compartments. figures and suitcases.
I have not added lighting, but the baggage/REA has flourescent tape over the windows.
It is being pulled by a Wabash freight F7, since that's all I have in Wabash.  I covered the lack of power generation by the 'specially outfitted' baggage car with that power machinery added.

Hey Petey. I like the NH Hudson and the cars are brightly lite. Wabash. A middle of the country railroad. I'm a easterner. I have some Penn Line cars and a GP7 in that road name. It is a set with no box. I am not attached to them.

Frank,
Looking at your earlier post, when did the Pennsy get silver cars with domes?
