15710RE: [FJGRailroad] Brill Gas Car Model on eBay
- May 29, 2014I think it is a great brass model of a Brill gas electric car. Beyond that look closely at the paint trim, color of the hickory and then the layout of the car. All the doors are wrong, the window count is so far as modifying it with a center door, 340 had no "front" door when it arrived nor ever after, this car has two radiators, the side doors have 3 lights, the 340 had 4. It looks to be a close model of the NYC M-10, a 1928, 250 hp. machine.

I suspect the person who bought this has no interest in the FJ&G for very obvious reasons; it isn't the same Brill model, which is really all that needs to be said.
