    Still a darn steep price for just one shell (and roof, apparently). These are not so hard to find. It is the underparts, particularly the truss rods, that are darned hard to find.

    Indeed. I'm probably going to just start making my own underframes for a lot of my rolling stock.

    Here's a seller that is trying to win the lottery. Most of his prices are...wishful thinking. He quotes the former auction prices in the ad, but most of those prices are pre-2008 collapse.

    https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?ite...tfv&_ssn=jointlinenscale&_pgn=2&_skc=50&rt=nc

    Examples: A MT Illinois State car for $210

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTL-Micro-...673124?hash=item2efce9c024:g:mnYAAOSw9GhYdM6r

    A bunch of reefers all over $150

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kadee-J-MT...745249?hash=item1eceb14e21:g:caAAAOSwTUVZrAMX

    Graphitti box cars for over $100

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTL-Micro-...087695?hash=item2ee1d153cf:g:DLAAAOSwLEtYggYn

    Some cars (like this one) I was still able to find on line (for $35) but according to his listing, the high auction price was $82 (so he's asking $82)

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/MTL-Micro-...541978?hash=item2f09f56c9a:g:~2EAAOSw-81ZnA06

    and this one. High auction is $68 so he's asking $68

    Nothing "like new" about at least the left car of those two. Runners, Rapidos, well used. Worth well under ten dollars.

    Um, aren't those supposed to have Knuckle couplers? After all that's what micro trains is all about. my guess is those are cheap lifelike or model power flats that just he just happened to have matching MT boxes for.

    At one time in the distant past of N scale, I believe Kadee (before MTL was separate) offered their cars with Rapido couplers, for modelers who wanted them. Hard to believe. The past is a foreign country.
