"But keep in mind that the very accurate Red Caboose flat car is a GOOD model of that SP car class. The RC dies are now owned by, and used for production by, the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society."

Very true, but Bruce makes a very valid financial point.  Not all of us can afford to drop $1.2K on a train of models, no matter how nice they are.  I can't fault his decision, and each one of us has to balance what we want and what we can afford.
