    Well seems im getting myself in a weeee bit of trouble :eek: :twisted: :twisted:

    I posted a request on HOYARDSALE (yahoo group) asking for BNSF, CSX, and UP/CNW boxcars, hoppers, flatcars, intermodal, as well as 16k and 23k tank cars (ULTX, and ADM) and i got a few e-mails back from some people, none of them haveing too much stuff, just a couple cars each.

    I was already to commit to the few people who had sent me what they had in the e-mails when i see an e-mail tittled "Here's the list!!!" I opened it and saw that this person had TONS of what im looking for!!!! Not exactly the prices im willing to pay for them but, now heres the thing, he told me that if I buy the whole lot from him (which includes 51 freight cars; 16k and 23k tank cars (21) intermodal cars (17) Greenville Open Top Hoppers (3) Airslide Covered Hopper, 89' Piggy Back, Boxcars (2) 52' Gondola, and ACF Covered Hoppers (3) ALL IN THE ROADNAMES I WANT!!!!!! and 38 53' and 48' containers!!!!!) that he would work with me and i could make payments to him for the whole lot!!!! 51 cars and 38 containers :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Nothing is set in stone yet as I have not gotten an e-mail back from him (its only been about 2 hours since I re-plyed back to him lol) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Im pretty exited about this find, its going to really build my frieght car roster up and since i cant start my new layout at the moment i think this would be an okay move to get some more frieght cars :cool:. As you all know, you can never have to much frieght :mrgreen:

    Post back as soon as i here more and get another e-mail back from him

    Wow Josh, sounds great! Are you signed up to receive individual emails from HOYARDSALE? I've seen a number of intermodal cars (including one I grabbed) recently. I've tried to get them myself, but most people never reply.

    Individual e-mails? Do you mean like e-mails when someone lists something? I get those, thats usually how i check out HOYADSALE is by just seeing whats been posted from the e-mails i get.

    Ok. I was just asking, because I see yours once & a while, and I've seen a few intermodal listings, just wondering if you caught them.
