Some are near duplicates like two versions of the elephant stock car, and the combine with only the colors being different.  There are two others with Emmett Kelly reporting marks but Bachamnn Brothers markings. More than likely you have them all.   I will post a list later this evening.

Does anyone know any on-line (or by phone)places you can buy older Bachmann Emmett Kelly Jr. cars like the reverse color elephant car, the zebra car ,and Bobber Caboose?

  watch eBay carefully for a while......Bachmann Circus cars and locos are showing up all the time...there is a loco w/2 flat cars and a bobber caboose that showed up a few hours ago and I have seen at least a dozen zebra cars go in the last 6 - 12 months....2 different elephant cars ...a zebra car and a bobber floating around on there at the moment....just keep an eye on it on a regular basis....


    Hope this is some help.....Later All......S.B.

SB is right Ebay is probably your best bet, most EKjr was out of the catalog by 2001. The ringmaster set hung in til 2006, so in stock somewhere probably not much.  Try trainWorld and Nicholas Smith Trains, and any advertiser in Garden Railways Magazine who might have it.
