Kris Undecorated Rolling Stock

Kris Model Trains also produced undecorated rolling stock in already built and kit versions. Other blank cars may have been made to test the plastic. There are two "Blank" boxcars and one stock car listed in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains.

Kris undecorated milky white boxcar

Undecorated boxcar; milky white; sliding black panel doors; full ladders; postwar Lionel bar end caboose trucks. Variation not in Greenberg's. M. Smith believes this car resulted when a color change took place during the manufacturing process. The car is translucent milky white with no marbling of colors, so a clear plastic was used to clean out the machine during a color change. Clear to white or white to some other color with the clear pushing the white out. Later, someone installed a brake wheel, chassis, doors and trucks. The car came in a white box. Variation not in Greenberg's. Photo courtesy of the M. Smith collection.
