The 2421 Maplewood Pullman Passenger car is part of the 2421, 2422 and 2423 passenger car set of the early to mid 1950s. It was a popular set and the 2421 is a fairly common item to locate. Its silver paint is easy to nick, mark or scratch, and most of these passenger cars are found in less than collectable condition. Clean examples are hard to find.

Standard features on the 2421 Maplewood Pullman include: painted silver bodies with black lettering, silhouetted window strips, die-cast passenger car trucks with operating couplers plus interior illumination.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The 2421 was available with and without black horizontal side strips. The black strip versions are slightly harder to locate than the non-striped passenger cars.

Horizontal Black Strips - The 1950 and 1951 production cars include a dark-gray painted roof with a black strip running the length of the car. Two of these strips appeared on each side, one above and one below the windows.
Without Horizontal Black Strips - Shown in the photo above - This is the later production run from 1952 and 1953 where all black side strips were eliminated and the roofs were now painted the same color as the sides.
