How many color variants of this small Wamu boxcar are there?
#1
Question 
This one if you're not sure what I'm referring to:
[Image: plarailwamu.jpg]


I'm aware of the following variants:

Tomy:
Brown with red wheels
Brown with yellow wheels
Red with yellow wheels
Green with yellow wheels
Blue with yellow wheels
Grey with grey wheels
Black with yellow wheels

Trackmaster (all with grey wheels):
Light grey
Red
Brownish-red
Olive
Yellow
Blue
A slightly darker blue (not sure if this one actually exists or it was just the lighting in the photo I saw)
Red with "Elsbridge Ice Supply" logo and white "snow" specks
Dark blue with white "lime" specks

Anyone aware of one or more others (other than the Trackmaster 2 versions)?

there is one comes with dark blue with numerous white dots to depict snows.  There is a purple version with a clown face on it.  Check my website link below to view them.

Hi Br...welcome back.

This is a good question. I have had so many of these come through my hands the colors seem endless.

Isn't there another colour shown in the photo that you've posted at the top of this thread, coupled to the right of the grey one? It looks white or pale cream?

Thanks, thought that blue one was the just the lime specked one that came with the ghostly Percy, guess not.

Thanks Super, was out of this hobby for the last few years but the bug bit again recently.

Do you have one of the white ones? As all the ones I saw in stores at the time were actually light grey (as on the right hand side of my photo).

That's the one I called light grey. I guess it is a bit cream colored but is more of a tinged light grey to my eyes.

Not sure if you can tell in this picture but the blue on the right is like an aqua blue compared to the blue on the left.

it won't be difficult to make a replica of the event exclusive. Get a black marker and 2 sets of yellow wheels.

Really? I didn't know these stubby Box Cars were Event Exclusives or do you mean that just this color variant (black with yellow wheels) was exclusive. Somehow card in the picture seems like its not a fit but maybe it explains it in the description and I wonder what Event it was from as I haven't seen any Plarail Expo video's that showed an exclusive on a card. The seller does state its unopened but the packaging looks strange to me.

The seller (voxy664) is offering other items 'unopened' in the same rather dubious looking packaging. I would be inclined to caution.

Just meant the black one was an event item. That being said my only source is that listing so take that with a grain of salt.
Pretty sure I've seen that carded packaging before so didn't think much of it. Might be thinking of something else though.
