Frank's Roundhouse - Bunk Car Information
On this page is some additional information regarding the Lackawanna Bunk Car.
Lackawanna Bunk Car clear sticker, located on the car bottom, indicates it was built by Frank Rash of Frank's Roundhouse and decorated by Pleasant Valley Process (PVP) and Newbraugh Brothers Toys (NBT) in April 1986.
The Lackawanna Bunk Car came with two clear side markers and one black smokestack, which were stapled in a clear plastic bag. The side markers plug into holes located on either side of the car, while the smokestack fits into a hole in the roof.
One end of the Lackawanna Bunk Car box has a Frank's Roundhouse label. The label shows Frank's Roundhouse address and phone number, and was stamped LACKAWANNA BUNK CAR.
The other end of the Lackawanna Bunk Car box shows the car was originally a Lionel U.S. Marines Bunk Car with a catalog number of 6-5727. Reuse of the original Lionel box was a cost-saving measure for Frank's Roundhouse.
