Rotten wood, rusty frames

Decided to make a post about something that I didn’t know was anything special until about a week ago. I purchased this “3D face” S. C. Ruffey at a Value Village over a year ago, and supposedly it’s a rather uncommon toy.

As you can see it’s in rather good condition. Comparing it to the regular S. C. Ruffey freight car, the higher level of detail is quite obvious. I still somehow find myself preferring the original however! I’m not sure what it is, but I think it might be the character-filled snarling face compared to the “3D face” being a little stoic. Apologies for the bashed in front end on my regular S. C. Ruffey, I’m not sure how I managed that one! -MagicRail

Both versions are nice...I lean towards the 3D face one.

There is an element of Greek mythology herein. The description of archetypal personalities, that Freud later drew heavily upon. Perhaps Reverend Audrey was tapping into this vein, on some level. I know little of the man, but clergymen, especially of his time, would have been schooled in Greek.
