Aristo-Craft Series 60000 Figures

Post by Knut S » Mon Aug 21, 2017 1:15 am

Hi,

I want to add the Aristo-Craft series 60000 figures to the global G-Scale database and am looking for some help.

The complete list of ART 60000 figures I have starts with 60001, Warren, the seated train engineer and ends with 60094, Kathryn, the young girl.
I assume there were no figures with the Aristo-Craft numbers 60095 or later, 60094 is the last one
(The 62001 figure sets and the animals I will do later)

But in the list from 60001 to 60094, I'm missing a description of the following numbers:
60021
60022
60023
60024
60038

Woiuld any one know if figures with those numbers were ever produced anc have a description for them.

Also, for the listing in the G-Scale Database I need a picture of the 60001 train engineer.
Anyone have that figure and is willing to contribute a picture?
If not I will scan the picture in one of the Aristo catalogs.

Thanks,
Knut

You are a saint. I for one appreciate all the work you are putting into this database. It is a wonderful resource, and even more important now that Aristocraft is no more.

Ed,

I'm glad you find the database useful.

The original purpose was to capture as much as possible Garden Railroad products that are no longer in production so everything in the Aristocraft line fits that criteria perfectly.
Initially we only focussed on powered and non-powered rolling stock but a while back we added whatever older Preiser figures we could find so I thought even just a listing and description of Aristocraft figures might be useful.
I don't think anyone else ever offered a line of 1/29 figures, Preiser figures were 1/22.5, 1/24 and 1/32

I have listed whatever I have of the Aristo 60000 series figures here: http://www.gbdb.info/details.php?image_id=8837
The Aristo 62000 figure sets and the Tom Daniel figures will come later

Knut

PS: The ART 60001 figure is a copy from the Aristo catalog - not very good but best I have.
The database software is set up so that at least an image and catalog number is required to dd anything - thus I had to use this image.

If anyone can contribute a better image of the ART 60001 please let me know and I will replace the one that is in the database now.
Or if you see any errors in the database (and I'm sure there are some), let me know and I will correct it.

Gilbert of glxscalemodels.com sells a lot of Aristocraft parts that he makes via 3 D printing. He was a good source for parts for two of my Aristo Pacific steam locos and switch (turnout) parts. The more business he gets, it is logical he will make more parts. The parts I purchased from him were precise replicas and fairly priced. He is located in Canada but postage is reasonable.

I added one entry for the six Tom Daniel figures to the database.

Picture is from the 2006-2007 Aristocraft catalog.

I'm wondering if those Tom Danile figures were actually ever produced.
I see them in the catalogs and price lists but could not find even a single one of any of the six via google or on ebay (both current and completed auctions)
That's unusual - if a product existed one tends to find something related to it on google and/or ebay.

As to the Lil' figures I was asking about:
60021
60022
60023
60024
60038

All pricelists I have seen so far do not include those numbers so I think figures with those numbers were never produced.
