In my recent post on car sides I mentioned there were several other makers that produced OO gauge cars with printed sides besides the more commonly seen sides/models of Champion, Eastern, Famoco, Nason, and Scale-Rail.
UPDATED 2011: Initially, all the info I had on the Page Model Company (Page Scale Models) of Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, was contained on this instruction sheet. Bill Chapin had this sheet (only) and allowed me to Xerox it some years back. Click on it for a larger version.
From it we can glean the details that the body must have been a solid wood block and that printed car sides and ends were glued on.
While I was always pretty sure it was a pre-war firm, after years of looking, in 2011 I finally tracked down a Page advertisement in the December, 1938 issue of The Model Craftsman. That ad may be seen in this article.
Also I was able to examine photos from Dick Gresham of a pair of Page kits that were sold on eBay. Comparing these cars to the kit shown in this photo was interesting. I had thought that this kit was by Nason (it was sold to me as such, but without instructions). Actually, it is Page. But read on.
Page really did not last long. My guess as of now is it was a brief attempt to put out a lower cost version of the Nason cars [see comment #4, below], but it did not work out and Nason sold what residual stock was left from the attempt, such as this kit.
Be watching for another update or article on this--I don't believe this relationship has been noted previously, and there are certainly variations in details of the Eazy-Bilt cars as well to note in more depth. (The built up car in this photo and more details on the Nason Eazy-Bilt boxcar kits may be found in this post).
UPDATE 2013: And welcome to the Train Collectors Quarterly readers who did a Google search for the Page Model Company and found this article after seeing the Page 00 gauge cars in Part 122 of the "Who Done It?" series, published in their January, 2013 issue. As a text search this article is presently on the fifth page of results, but as an image search the instruction sheet here is right at the top! See this new article for more photos and information on the Page Model Company.
