    You must mean a Cab-forward. I don't recall any in the past in N scale. There's a bunch of them being put out in HO lately, surely there's one in N but I'll bet they'll be well into the long green, $200-400 range easily.

    The only ones I've seen in N scale were brass.
    We're talking taking out a second mortgage to get one.

    The brass (Samhongsa and Key N) SP cab forwards I've seen on eBay generally sell for around $1000.

    Cheers
