    Do they not sell rolling stock at your local hobby shop?

    Is there particular rolling stock you are looking for, or will any old car do?

    These 2 statements seem to be kind of contradictory. :confused: ...but......If you just want quantity, try the bargain bins at local train shows. If you're looking for specific roads and/or eras at bargain prices, try eBay.

    Good luck! :)

    I get my best stuff at the flea markets. There is usually a pretty good variety of offerings....so, what are you looking for that would suit your tastes?

    well the ones at my hobby shop are brand new and the paint is very plastic looking. im lookign for kind of like what you suggested bargain bins, or fleamarket stuff. they have alot of old stuff (easy to paint rust on) and for cheap!

    You can get rid of that plastic shine with a simple coat of "Testors dullcoat", It might not be John Pryke but its better looking then a plastic shine.

    Brand-new cars are just as easy to paint as old ones...
