    Any roadname. If you happen to know a shop or someone who has one (or two), I need one for a project and I missed them when they were first released. Thanks!

    I'm looking for one also. I would like to do the Chateau Martin car. I recall intermountain announced the car but it never materialized. I have one of the wooden Athearn cars to do for my 1948 era but I would like to have one of the steel ex GPEX cars.

    That's what I want to do as well. It was one of the few cars I actually pre-ordered. I never even knew that they came out (the cars, since they never came out with the Chateau Martin version). It wasn't until last year that the place I pre-ordered it from finally said '...okay, I guess they aren't going to run this (and a bunch of other IM stuff as well) so we are cancelling the orders'. That's when I started looking and found out that they actually ran a very limited number of the other cars (only six roads, only one to four numbers each). I've never actually seen any pictures other than the ones IM had on the website, let alone an actual IRL car. I keep hoing to find one (or two) but after hours of searching the internet with a fine tooth comb (and as an IT pro, I know how to search the internet) I have only found a few places that even ever listed them in stock and they are all gone now. Nothing on that auction place and nothing here and I never heard back from contacting IM...maybe they really don't exist.

    They do exist. I have 4 of the Bordens cars and one other. At the time i only bought what I thought I could use. They do pop up from time to time online but I have seen them sell for far more that I was going to pay for them.

    The future may hold some surprises for us, Maybe 2021 will be great year for N scale!!!

    Still waiting to hear back from IM...was hoping that they might say something about another run. Now you tease me with having some of these rare cars and that there might be something in the future. That's just cruel...

    I think cruel would have been to post photo's of my cars...

    No, that would be worse than cruel. Just knowing that you have them and I don't is cruel enough.
