    WOW! Those are hard to come by..IMHO the best bet would be to check local train shows.

    WOW I have 4 my wife brought home that some one threw out.

    They share a dumpster with other offices at work. She found a whole set in there once and sent one of her gys in after it.

    Good luck with your hunt.
  4. Kitbashed, Check E-bay, they are on there regularly. Joe

    They regularly show up on ebay. I bought several this year in the $4-10 range. You can also pick up the set with a car and the ramp for the same price range too. The prices for the mint cars with original boxes sometimes gets a little crazy though.
