Default G Scale Wooden Tank car and Boxcar

I just recieved a couple of cars that we puchased on E Bay and would like to know who made them and when.
The boxes are marked "Made in West Germany" 9208 and 9204.
The cars have working springs, brass wheels and all the metal is brass.
The tank car has little doors on the roof with tiny hinges. The ladders are brass and the rungs soldered on.
The cars are also stamped "Made In West Germany" I'm enclosing some pictures.
Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Lou

I don't know
The only marking is "Made in West Germany"
Even the boxes have the same markings plus the #s 9204 and 9208, which I think are the model #.
Thanks,
Lou

Since they say 'Made in West Germany', they are definitely post WWII.
Top names I can think of are Fleishmann, Bing and Marklin.

Thanks,
They are from before 1990 when West Germany ended.
They have some phillip screws and they look pretty new.
The boxes are in great shape with foam cut outs to fit them perfectly.
I've checked Fleishman, and Marklin and they never made wooden train cars.
Lou
