Over time we have accumulated items that, for one reason or another, cannot be sold through our regular network of dealers and distributors.
Ordinarily, we would take these items to shows but that hasn't been an option for a while. Now we are making them available to the
general public on a direct-order basis only. Assume there is only one left of each of these items. Everything is subject to sellout
prior to the next website update. Allow me to explain the suffix to the item numbers:
"sample" means this car was the production sample
for the run. It was the first completed car off the production line and was sent to the office for approval. It is usually the car
photographed for the website. They are complete but there is no paper insert in the box.
"orphan" or "orphan b" means this is a road
number that was in a 2-pack or 3-pack (the last digit of the item number tells you which) but is now on its own.
for Repair In Place. These are cars that have other issues such as a missing coupler trip pin (not an issue if you don't use magnetic
uncouplers), missing shrink wrap on a 2-pack, etc. The issue is spelled out in the description. If you are interested in any of these
cars, drop us a line at (be sure to include the item number suffix:)
