 Product Description

HOn3 6 PACK kits MRGS # 101 D&RGW double deck stock cars

 HOn3 MRGS 6 PACK OF D&RGW double deck, narrow gauge, 30' stock cars. 6 Complete KITS, bulk packed in poly bags, NEW in one box, six D&RGW 5500 series 30' stock cars. This is the ONLY way to get DOUBLE DECK stock cars unless you add one of the MRGS double deck floor kits to some other manufacturers car (kit or ready to run); OR buy a Blackstone DD for $ 60 or $ 70 dollars (for one). NOTE, BS are all the same, no variety (nothing wrong with this, just not prototypical), here you get six(6) for close to the cost of one (Blackstone) and you can make six (6) different cars. Have variety (as was (is)the prototype) in your train.  See Vic Stone's book on stock cars for explanation of variations of board pattern and lettering. 
Styrene plastic with some metal details, wire etc. Complete with one set of instructions, and extra parts to model many different car types, side board variation, etc. Parts for second deck to make into sheep car are included and easy to install while building kits. NOTE: no trucks are included, 
 Priced at $84.00, a savings of $3.50 per car (or one plus kits free). Sorry for the price increase, due to rising cost of Styrene.  Not out of production, but often hard to find; not sold(in bulk) to or distributed through retail stores, however, we do occasionally list on E-Bay. See our other listings (or auctions) for other Hon3 Narrow Gauge items (Passenger Cars). Also trucks (freight, passenger and caboose) and structures. Look for A Quick Pick Book (D&RGW 5500 series stock cars) listed for auction on these cars.
 The pictures of the built up model and prototype car are to show what a completed car looks like, this auction is for a KIT to build this type of car. For more photographs of built up cars and variations in lettering and side boards look in R Robb's "Narrow Gauge Pictorial, Vol 4" and Victor Stone's book "Taking Stock". NOTE; no paint, couplers or decals are included. Great to build variations and mix with Blackstone cars for variety and eliminate the cookie cutter looking train. For free running we recommend Blackstone trucks or Grandt Line 3' 7" arch bar trucks if you can find them.
Be sure to check out our other items for even more narrow gauge rolling stock, locomotives, structure kits, pictures and more, lots more Narrow Gauge there.
