Frank's Roundhouse - L & J Hobbies

The rolling stock on this page were sold by L & J Hobbies of Portage, Michigan. Frank's Roundhouse sold blank body shells to L & J Hobbies. Because these cars are sometimes found in Crown Model Products boxes, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that Crown decorated these cars for L & J.
