Hope they'll roll well at those prices. I'll stick with my FMVs even though they're a different model, too light, and lack underbody detail. I'm happy with them. Body mounted couplers, metal wheels, and only $18.95 a car list. $227 per 12 - pack. They were so much cheaper. Thanks Matt!

Its been a while since those were produce, wonder what they will cost now.

Another month oh multiple HO offerings I would pay big money for in N scale.  I got the last two Horizon cars today.  I will check back in three years to see what is new in N scale that is of interest. That seems to be the cycle.

LETS GOOO! Now that N Scale will have both the Autoflood 2 and 3, it’ll now be possible to model a modern TVA unit train!  :D

Dang those are so expensive that with the future of coal shipments looking grim, I think I have to take a pass. Might as well be 40 bucks a car by the time you factor in tax and shipping. That's simply too much for a coal hopper on my railroad.

At that price a long unit train is a truly frightening undertaking.

$4,000 for a hundred car train. Amazing but that's where we're at to get fine cars produced. Definitely in the quality over quantity era which is tough when modeling long unit trains.
A mile long autorack train is about the same price, maybe a bit less.

I'd be happy to pay $40 for a proper centerbeam 73' flat - in fact I'd buy 10.

But this is nuts...
