    Charlie, those are retail prices

    Hi, charlie, those are retail prices, you usually can get these for around $60 thru a hobby store. Please visit here > www.staubintrains.com/trainshop/default.asp
    This is St Aubins and they always get discounts thru USA Trains.

    Sorry can't help you there. Every bit of information I have on USA Trains American Series Woodside (Billboard) refrigerator cars was culled over the last 4 years from internet research and daily monitoring of eBay sales. I've even email USA Trains but they haven't been very helpful such that I still haven't a clue to the identity of R1602, R1606 and R16008. Good luck in your quest also.

    Very good work, much appreciated. I have never seen any catalogs earlier than 1998 so I don't even know if they exist. USA Trains also made uncataloged items I know for sure over the years. They realied mainly on advertising in Garden Scale railways. so I probably would be better off searching for old garden Railway magazines before 1998.

    It does take alot to save for G scale, but if you built your own G scale fund like saving $50 a month in a shoe box and don't touch it, you would have save $600 for the year, save this every year and just buy a little at a time. My collection is 10 years in the making.

    Yeah, I can see what you are saying there... I do have an (indoor) place where a small G layout would be just the thing. Some money would be just the thing too. :(

    Mixed bag

    I didn't either!!! I'm sure there are other odd ball and limited runs all across the board I'm not a collector and I will only buy what I will run but it is nice to know what is out there that has been produced and may never be see again,I think with a lot of hobbies sometimes the fun is in the hunt!! as they say with adventures the real fun is getting there and sometimes the final results of the adventure becomes ho hum after you arrive. Enjoy the ride as they say! Keep looking an maybe someday you'll find that one car you have always wanted to own, The hunt is the fun part!!! As you can tell I love the beverage cars,billboard reefers and piggybacks.
