    Nice looking, but I have drawers full of brown boxcars needing to be renumbered. More cars than I need for the layout, much less the era-inappropriate ones. I was thinking I need to clear the inappropriate cars out to raise money for metal wheelsets. Don't want to let the "multi-era" bug bite me while I'm not paying attention.

    Are the boxcars on preorder status and what is the deadline?
