I know one popped up on Ebay a few weeks ago as part of a 6-kit offering. Since I wasn't anxious to pay $200 or more for the one kit out of six I really wanted, I opted to pass up on it."
I have two of these kits, one built and one still in the box. They are quite crude in a way, and I was never happy with the one of them which I built. I even took it apart and used the kit ends on a Red Caboose car instead. I still didn't like it and I have never finished it. Among other things, the ends seem overly thick, and the body side tabs, which are separate pieces, are rather "clunky" (is that a RR term of the art?).
I'm waiting eagerly for the Intermountain version.
