3 wagons for $400? Are you insane?

Sometimes, but not this time. I wasn't looking at the price. That's way too high! I suppose that it may be rare, but really?

Is it just me, but does it look like there are 4 cars in that box?

Even at 4 for $100, that is insanely high. Especially since there is a CSX car in there.....
I could build a massive fleet of cars for $400.

The "4th" car on the side is actually the bottoms for the 3 box cars. Not only is it expensive, it's a kit.

I prefer kits, it makes for some fun times. I find that if I can focus in hard enough on something that I am working on, I am able to weather the pain a little more.

3 for a $100? You can often find G gauge cars for that much!

It's a shame they are so expensive, They look really nice. The shop I bought my FP from had pics on their website, I was blown away until I saw the price. And I believe they're resin, not injection molded plastic. So for the price of 20 or 25 Possum Valley kits I can buy three of them? Sorry!

I am sure that Elmer would love an order for 20 PVM cars, he does great work.
