I ordered these so they can be stripped and used by our club as part of the club fleet. Absent undecs, $130 for 46 cars is a bargin we will take even if we need to strip the cars.

lol - It's beginning to sound like there is a drunken robot working the system at Atlas!
What the heck are you all ordering anyway?? When I click on 40 foot Branchline box car
kits I only see ONE available - a PRR box car. No undec kits for sure, so no extra roofs,
ends, or doors.
I tried to order 7 50 foot single door cars, and I got the discount. But shipping was still $22
as before, via UPS. There was no USPS shipping except express overnight mail for $70. It's
all academic to me, but still I find it fascinating that Atlas would ship 10 cars (3 lb package
at least) to CANADA for $4 !! When it would cost any ordinary mortal at least $25. =-O
Sounds like that drunken robot is going to have a wicked headache in the morning.
I just ordered 46 cars by phone and shipping was $10 to Pittsburgh, PA
