Just happen to see this and remembered I had seen and copied the info.

I don't know any status of the place or if it's still around.

Thanx, Stix

The video seem to be via; "Garden Trains" a LSOL (itself closed) affiliate ! But GT is still a active site.

For those interested in the egghaulers maybe send a email (asking availability/price) to with a p.s. link to this thread ;) !?

The long-discontinued AristoCraft pin with crossbucks continues to catch the eye of all ages and all scales (including a cp police member volunteering at their booth ST'12) when displayed as part of my creds' 'package' hanging off my ST lanyard. Every yr. I drop in a new pair of batts' to ensure they don't stop flashing . . . .

A couple yrs back MJ (?) hinted that someone was looking at a reissue of the item but obviously never happened !

I think waaay back the asking price was 7usd (?) now probably more like ten+ .... since i believe they were brass (backside is that colour anyways) with enamel or pad ink colouring ?

Yep that is correct The SECOND ORDER just came in and Star Hobby is handling the selling of #20143 & 20144. There is LESS than half of the re-order left.

The second order was for 25 cars for EACH road number of 20143 and 20144. So that is 50 cars total (25 for each number)

Because the re-order was small, the manufacture charges us more for each car. The cost of the second run is $75.00 EACH PLUS postage from Star Hobby.

This is the LAST CALL on the 2014 ECLSTS Show cars. NO MORE reorders.
