Throw away those things and get some MDC trucks - they make a commonwealth
passeneger truck that comes ready to roll for about $3 a pair.   (Assuming
those are correct on the Flyer car) -

In that case let's not forget the sides from West Shore Line for NYC 2600
series and 3000 series coaches.  The latter needs little paint as it's
plated to accurately represent stainless steel.  They use an Eastern Car
Works core kit to assemble and again your choice trucks.

If all you want though is some green cars that say PC on them it shouldn't
be too hard to find some jade green paint, spray bomb a set and throw some
decals at them - which is one thing we should all remember, not everyone is
fussy for the exact prototype cars -
