    $70 ????? There is not enough detail on that to make it worth that price. Just my opinion.

    These are worth every penny. I have a half dozen TrainWorx semis on my layout and they are gorgeous . I wouldn’t doubt if you see these going for twice as much on eBay in 2 months.

    $69.95 is the MSRP.
    Street price will be lower, but as Karl said within a few days after they start selling, they'll be sold out and you'll find them on eBay going for much much more.

    If you have not seen one in person and compared it to say a ConCor rig, then you have no idea the amount of detail they have. JMO...

    I have a few also among them is the Budweiser rig and they are awesome. The details are amazing and worth every penny. Thanks Trainworx for such a great product.

    Twisted trailer? One of the wheels is not on the ground in the last picture.

    Looks like the rear axle could be twisted or not seated properly?

    The wheels have some up and down travel. A little tap and the high one will drop no problem.

    One of the wheels on the rear axle of the trailer was a bit crooked when I got the model. It was easily fixed, but I did not notice it until after I took the photos.
