So, I contacted Intermountain, complimented them on the new tank cars, and inquired about the possibility of acquiring the beautiful new wire handrails that come on their new tank car releases to retrofit my old cars. The good news is they are available. The not so good news is that they are available at five bucks a pop. Ouch. I'm told that's what their Chinese manufacturer charges them
I did order a few to test them out on old cars with broken handrails, like the one below.
We'll see if that's money well spent.
