    I guess I didn't get the memo. I took a break from painting and decaling my own stuff (of about a year) and just recently caught the bug again only to find that nobody carries MT undec rolling stock. When did this happen and how did I miss it? Now I need a hard to find car (actually two straight sided flats...a VERY unpopular car) for a kitbash and NOBODY has them. I guess I'm just venting, forgive me...

    There was a move away from kits and undecorated models since the early 2000s, but they're coming back in popularity it seems. That being said, N scale needs a manufacturer comparable to Accurail in HO!

    Best bet would be to email/call MTL direct and ask if they have the undec in stock.

    Did the dealer in NY still have any of those cars?
