Hi Guys, My first question..... What on earth makes those HO Rivarossi Log cars so dammed expensive? ($39.95 for a 2 pack from Walthers). Are they brass? Are they as nice as the KD kits? I'm having a hard time justifing the expense. Second question......I saw a picture someplace of a Log car made from a 40 or 50 foot gondola, I can't remember if it was a model or prototype. It had most of the sides cut down to floor level except for a small section on the ends which acted like a bulkhead. It had what looked like Details West log bunks spaced out in the cutout opening. Can someone direct me to a photo of this car? Thanks Guys, keep on loggin'!!!
