Well Rod, if they could be made cheaper and as you described - you'd think someone would have jumped on the chance and be rolling in the (slightly less) cash by now?Yes and I was going to do just that. However Shrike got in the way, and anyway at 70 years of age, I decided in all that I could not risk my super on the venture. I am pretty certain, anybody wishing, has enough info here to retrace my steps, and investing a few thousands could do the job, and make a quid or three?
How long have the car carriers been available for?...
In all I bought 12 Viccy brass car wagons from End of Line and they are light brass and Epoxy and absolutely magnificent
I then bought 17 mixed VR,SA and NSW Auscision models, which are also magnificent. The loaded train might have to use a lot of closed side wagons I guess to lighten the hit on the wallet!
But you are correct $1700 is the easy no risk way to go, but that does not change my declaration that they are too bl00dy expensive for their intended application
