I'm happy that it worked out for ya 50's... that's great. But the "collector" is one of the reasons that we now have viturally every manufacturer of n scale rolling stock and power units making "limited editions".. translation, buy it now, and pay a lot so that we don't have any inventory costs what so ever. You buy it when we say, at what we say, or you don't get one... period.

The "collector" has been the major cause of this problem; of the grotesquely over inflated secondary market prices (read e-bay, the n scale collector auctions, etc...) and the virtual end of normal production runs.

I agree with you that it's great when that one of a kind car you have always wanted pops up because some wonderful friend or benefactor was smart enough to stash a few away ten years ago and is kind enough to make them available. But it is the "n scale collectors' who have done a great deal to put this hobby in the state it is today, less about running trains and more about "who has what limited edition" release......
