Whenever I see a Suydam brass HO model that represents any one of the wood interurban cars in the “Ten” series, my first thought is, “I gotta get me one of these!” Everett August 13, 2012 Reply I bid and won a Suydam brass HO PE “Tens” #1032 coach on eBay a few days ago. I received the model today. It is a beautiful piece. This is my second #1032 car from eBay. My Suydam rass HO traction model train collection has grown significantly since I started collecting Suydam brass models this past January. I am still looking to add more “Tens” to my collection.

We have 1001 in running condition, although it usually comes out only for special events (for several reasons). Next to it is PE Tower Car 00157, also available as a Suydam model, also operable on special occasions. Many years ago we had it out for some overhead maintenance, and a visitor asked, “Is that 00157?” (doesn’t have numbers repainted yet) When I said, “It sure is.” He replied “I have the brass model of it. Just then we had to move it to clear the loop, so I said, “Would you like to ride the real thing?” and he climbed in. I think we “Made his day.” Everett August 17, 2012 Reply No, I haven’t been the Orange Empire Railway Museum. In fact, I’ve never been to California or anywhere near the west coast. But, yes sir, I certainly know about your Pacific Electric #1001. I’ve seen it featured in the OERM video, “Behind the Rails” by John Smatlak (OERM Vice President of Collections). I believe it is 1 of only two surviving “Tens” at the OERM. The other being the famed PE “Commodore” Business Parlor car #1000. I would have loved to have seen the PE #1001 in person since I am a big fan of the PE “Tens” equipment. I am also familiar with the 00157. I had a couple of opportunities to acquire this real life car as a brass HO scale model (by E. Suydam & Co.), but I decided to let them slip through my fingers, because I was trying to save money in case any one of the 3 “Tens” also produced/imported by Suydam suddenly became available thru eBay.com. I have all 3 “Tens” now, all from eBay except one. In fact, all of my Suydams are “clerestory” traction cars. That includes the Sacramento Northern “Niles” combines – #125 “Berry Car”, #126 and the SN observation car. It would be great if I could get out west to see the #1001 and hop on board for a ride. It would certainly make my day. I was a little disappointed to learn that the #1000 “Commodore” Business car and the #538 “Medium Five” are still in dire need of restoration after all these years. My second favorite are the famed “Five” cars. I will be keeping an eye on eBay for a 00157 – it will be the first non-clerestory cars in my Suydam collection when I get it. But I am still hunting for PE “Tens” – I’m collecting as many as I can get my hands on. I love these cars! Btw, are there any surviving members of the 1050-1057 series? These cars were built along with Pacific Electric’s own “Tens” at the Jewett Car Company in 1913. They were earmarked for The Peninsular Railway Co., Southern Pacific’s vest pocket interurban system radiating out of San Jose. And thanks for answering my inquiry regarding the John Smatlak book about the “Five” (#500) cars – excellent reading and great black & white photos. Bob Davis August 18, 2012 Reply I have a Suydam 00157 and also a 1465. If you are interested, please e-mail me at davistrain (at) aol.com. Regarding 1050-1057, according to Special 36, all were scrapped between 1947 and 1950. When they were in service, they would MU with “native” Tens.
