It would really make my in-laws happy to see some "home road" cars (albeit restenciled) running around loose on my layout:

According to BLW, they're showing only one car of a four-car set. The set sells for $89.98.  See (and scroll down):

Hmm... confusing...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

I think that Philip is simply asking if MT (um, Joe) would be willing to sell him one car out of the 4-pack.  BLW used to split multi-packs and sell individual cars, but they don't seem to be doing that anymore.

You're probably not the only one that feels that way.   If you're a gambler, you get the entire set and then resell what you don't need/want as individual cars.

That's the only way I've been able to get some of the specific Kato passenger cars I've wanted, but I'll also admit to basically getting them for 'free' if I was willing to break up the sets and resell individual cars I didn't need/want.  Yeah, its a pain, but it seems to work.

Winner winner chicken Dinner!

I got one of the drilling mud cars BLW split out of the 4 pack a while back . . . would love to have this specific one.

If possible, but the set, keep the car you want, then sell the remaining ones here on TRW.  Considering the number of members who operate modern-themed, and well-weathered layouts, this shouldn't be a hard sell.
