Looks like the TCA Convention cars are out. It's tough with these cars; they are expensive but the graphics are really nice. I just took delivery of some MTH Freight cars and they are really, really nice. This is where train stores are important because it is difficult to see how nice these cars are in a catalog.
I am anxiously awaiting last year's MTH operating car!!! So far, nobody seems to have one. As soon as I get one, I'll do a quick write up.
By the way, MTH is coming out with the new Tinplate Catalog in the next two weeks. I'll publish out the highlites as soon as I see it!
