Jayline Handcar Shed

Jayline is a rather elusive company to pin down. All I know is that it was formed in Philadelphia, PA in the early '40s and went out of business by the late '40s. Their entire tin-litho train line consisted of four buildings suitable for 3-rail O-gauge trains: Shed, Handcar Shed, Passenger Station, and Interlocking Tower. These are real toughies to find and I've only got three of them.
Today's featured Handcar Shed is quite unusual in that handcar sheds in general were the something one would normally see on a scale model railroad and not on a tinplate layout of the '40s. Enjoy!
