DAP Tinplate

This is kind of an interesting wrinkle in the new Lionel/MTH partnership. A Dealer Appreciation Standard Gauge Tinplate Car. Just when you think you've seen it all....
By the way, in looking at the new Lionel catalog I do like the Lionel Tinplate Club car. I know this is going to come as shock but I never liked the MTH Purple Club cars. Something not right about purple metal trains. It's like watching grapes on a layout...

I think this DAP car is a lot nicer than the Lionel Corporation Tinplate Club Car (although I like that too). The blue and orange is more striking than the cream.

Unlike you, I like the purple trains a lot. I am in the process of collecting the O Gauge versions and they look great!
