Interesting. Using an inflation calculator of 10 this was pretty serious money back then, just about $23 today. I purchased a built up Crystal Car Line version off the used/bargain table of my local hobby shop in 1966 and it still runs in my op sessions today. It is probably…almost certainly… the oldest car on my railroad.
