    Yes. Unless the site owner has one stashed away somewhere, they were all sold.

    Micro Scale makes decals for this car. It's an easy one color paint job.

    Finally got around to weathering and running this car. Added steel wheels and moderate chalks. MI 96599 Apr 2017.JPG

    I had to replace the metal under fame on one of mine. It swelled up like it had the dreaded Zamak disease. I have never seen that before or since in a Microtrain car.

    If anyone is interested, there was a guy on Facebook N Scale For Sale group yesterday that has three of these cars @ $20 each. There was a photo, and they looked right. FYI

    So... I let the factory air out of the box about a year ago, milled the frame down, body mounted the couplers and finished it off with a few chips on the roof and some light weathering. Since the car would have only been about four years old in my era, I didn't want to over-do it.

    That looks great, Joe. What weathering technique(s) did you use?

    Mine is still in the box.
