No details, but they're listed under products...

Umm, listed where?

This thread is too cryptic for my tastes. ;D

Ok, what is Hubert's web address?

A bit too pricey for me..
You`ll never find a Philly cheese steak on a menu in Philadelphia. It`s called a cheesesteak and we all know where it`s from...

DUH, it never even occurred to me to try Hubert's site. They are a bit pricey, but then again so are the IM products and probably for the same reason, very small manufacturer and small quantities. But they can be had for a reasonable discount from the few places on the net that carry Hubert products. Wig-Wag and Neal's come to mind.

MSRP is in line with M-T's initial offerings on the 100 ton triple hopper.

Still pricey though. ;)

If I could use one, no problem. But start thinking 20 to 30 for a unit train, it adds up a bit..

Huberts is doing themselves no favor with their crappy website... small or missing photos, incredibly slow response, broken links...   And no information - are these available?  In production?  What???

And click on the link to their developer - it's an Apache test page!  There you go, hiring your brother in law or the kid down the road to build your website!

Arrrggghhh!!!!!!

Their price isn't doing them any favors either.  Top Gons are not cars where one or two wil do.  These things run in unit trains.  At $24.00 a car I can assure you that there will not be any on my trackage.  In fact this was one car that I planned on casting my own of once I retired.  Decals are available if my memory serves me correctly.  If not I will have my own made.

Small companies like this rarely have the capital to make products and have a good website, too. Look at PCM: great-looking website, virtually no products. It's hard to afford both, and if they do have both, then it's usually the owner or a brother-in-law who knows HTML. Maybe...

That is certainly a good point on the price and the web/product issue...

Although I don't model it, I do follow Euro-N as well (I figure by retirement age it may make sense to take a look at it again more seriously). A new manufacturer is PLANNING to do the euro version of the coil cars - at like $40 a pop. Wow!

on the other hand, nobody else makes these, and presumably they will be discounted.
