Yes sir, that's the place to go. I've pick 'em up at WE BE TOYS :^)
for as low as $2 per car. Of course you've got to strip off the mega
paint Vlasic Pickles scheme. The problem with finding them at
train shops is that for some reason they've been a "J" item w/
Walthers meaning they have a higher wholesale price and the 
dealers don't make as much per car as say a Athearn or MDC. Of
course the fact they never made them w/ a prototypical scheme
didn't help either....
