    Greetings,

    SpecialRuns.com (a/k/a TrainBoard) is planning another special run. Our goal is to have special runs much more frequently than in the past (since we have done only one). As well, we want to expand into other scales.

    When we did our first special run, we offered a pre-announcement discount and offered people the chance to order before we even announced the roadname of the car. To my surprise, there were many orders. I don't remember how many but it seems like it was about 100 orders.

    Right now, we are looking at a (Micro-Trains) three car run; caboose, boxcar, tank. The pricing would be (ballpark) as follows:

    If we order 100: $124.00
    If we order 125: $109.00
    If we order 150: $103.00

    ...plus small flat-rate box shipping.

    We are not asking you to order now. We are asking how many would commit to order, regardless of roadname. We can tell you that this will be rare.

    We know a lot of people will say that it depends on the roadname, the era, etc. That is not where we are going right now. We are asking how many people would order now matter what, just to get the special run and to support this project, and likewise, how many people we can forget about selling this to.

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    Charlie, hope things at home are better. This has nothing to do with the poll, but I found a great car for those of us who enjoy beer. With apologies to Casey, whose images I stole from another site, but did crop them, check this out:

    I would possibly be interested. I would still be quite interested in a "Trainboard" specific three train cars myself;)
    Other would do but that is my choice
