Anyone interested in getting these done as a resin kit? Kaslo stated they needed 100 to garentee production. I want 8 myself.

Are these the Proto 2000 cars available in HO?

I've got at least 15-20 of them in CP and CN. Can't see any BC Rails on my railroad. My model club has an absolutely massive fleet of CP cars, as our layout serves several paper mills in the area.

Maybe Hobbycraft/TrueLine could be persuaded to do the same cars in N. These are a must have for almost any Canadian RRs and US roads receiving paper from Canada.

OK, I would be in for 4 cars or so.  Lots of CN traffic on the LV out of Buffalo.  Any idea on price?

I'd guess around $25 CDN based on their CN/BCR combo door boxcar. Just speculating here. Steep, IMHO, but where else you gonna get'em?
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
