      That's a pretty decent deal. I am kinda thinking as the cheap SOB I am to try not to spend much more than $10-15 bucks per car shipped ( I am in no hurry to amass shorty rolling stock). Your price, at the BIN price is $10 bucks a car shipped so that's not bad at all. I will keep an eye on it. I do want some ore cars for the mine. Hmmm.

       

      Thanks for posting that.

      If they don't sell as a single lot, break them into 4-pack lots for $20, they will definitely sell at $5 apiece. I've got about 10 already including two with Oscar the grouch and cookie monster still glued in ;-)

      I picked up four miniature ore cars for $20 for the lot at a club auction.  I think they are made be Ozark Miniatures, but could be wrong.  There is no writing on them and I've never seen them anywhere else.  The frames and chassis are entirely metal and they are very heavy for their size.  In fact, they continually break the white metal links.

       

      You can see them with a Hartland tank car at 3:38.
