    This is an old candy container. It used to have a paper cover on the bottom of it. There’s other designs also. Hmm for the price I am interested in it.

    Not the same guy who was selling the steamers separate from the tenders and then listing the tenders for $$ more.

    Roofs will probably show up for $$ more.

    All,
    This Lives up to the experienced MODEL RAILROADER to Scrounge around in their PARTS BOX with a ATLAS RAZOR SAW handy or BUILD their own Cab ROOF which I have done many times in the past and find that existing CHASSIS wether it is from the Manufacturer of the Locomotive Shells or from Either ATLAS or KATO to fit these Loco Shells. In this case I would look back to this ARTICLE > Fitting other Body Shells to the MINITRIX Chassis By the Late Jim Fitzgerald .

    It's just peculiar that the Seller seems to have an eternal supply of roofless body shells. These were recently added to the portfolio ......

    I agree. I begin to wonder why. Is this person grabbing such for el cheap at swaps, etc, and then trying to turn them on that auction site?

    There were open Jeeps--nothing but open Jeeps, for some years--before Porsche was founded.

    The lack of other details I can almost understand. The lack of roofs has me baffled however ! Maybe the guy has a fetish for locomotive roofs !! I can see a locked floor safe full of N Scale locomotive roofs the guy gaurds with his life !! :LOL::ROFLMAO:

    "...found condition."

    Right. Found buried in the back yard, next to the garbage can.

    What baffles me is someone actually bid on it. There's a fool born every day.

    Can you say make my day, sad but true. It's sad and funny at the same time.
