    Default Life-Like Canada Rolling Stock of 2000's

    I've purchased a number of Life-Like Canada (Canadian Hobbycraft) cars in the mid 2000 and I'm trying to inventory what has been released in that period.
    In addition to the ones I own, I've found a few more, but I'm currently stuck.
    The stock numbering is pretty linear, starting with 'C8250', ranging from 'C825001' to 'C825040' (if not more), with some reprints having '1' or 'A' as a suffix (e.g. 'C825011A').
    The reprints of the older numbers are fitted with Accumate couplers, whereas the original release was fitted with Rapido couplers.

    Any information - and photos - are more than appreciated.

    I was able to find an exhaustive list of these LL Canada freight cars searching on the wayback machine.
    They seem to have been released circa 2005-2006, and probably in two versions for most (Rapido or Accumate couplers).

    The listing I've found does not contain details on road numbers, colors and even less photos. So my previous request stands: any information is appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for sharing this. I have a few that I purchased in the early 2000's the quality was better than the USA Life-Like cars at the time. They came with accumate couplers and end markings, while the USA models lacked both. The printing and paint job was better also.
