General Models trolleys. I have one.
18 bodies, 27 chassis, none tested, various condition.
$200?

Some of those are really, really rough, Whole ends about gone.

Reminds me of the Yellow and Red cars stacked on Terminal Island for scrapping.

$20?

This IS weird. Of course the models themselves were weird too with that primitive rhesus motor etc.
Nice plastic carbodies though. I've seen examples that were hyper-detailed as well as kit-bashed 2 into one 1 to make a longer double truck Birney.
That chassis though mmmm....yeah junk. I still have one somewhere in the traction larder.

I know that Terminal Island photo you refer to well, as I recall it's one of the last pictures in Spencer Crump's "Ride The Big Red Cars."
Sad.

Not worth the electrons to look at it.

One of the films I have never managed to view for one reason or another, thus my ignorance of the connection! My bad, your good!
