Here is another photo taken at the NYCMTA Assn Mass Transit Modelers Show at Parsippany (Troy Hills)  New Jersey, on Nov. 3rd, 2018,  of two of the O-SCALE Market BUDD EL Car Body Shells (unfinished as would  look when bought) -- for those SERIOUSLY interested --- and these body shells come complete with floor and undertbody, truck frames (2)  and ------interiors for small extra cost.     These models  must be finished up to final completion....  Regards - Joe F

About a dozen or so years ago I was in search of Septa Regional Rail Silverliner cars. I came across Philly’s own IHP company. They started out with just making the shells. The cost was about $250 and there were few takers and they abandoned the O scale project. 

Now they are making them along with the almond joy El cars and the Kawasaki street cars in the smaller gauges. Here’s the link if you’d like to check them out.

Also, around the early 2000’s the Alfred Capella hobby shop near 3rd & Market had made a few 3 Rail O Gauge motorized Kawasaki street cars for sale in their shop for about $400.  I came across them by accident when I saw their sign after having dinner at Bookbinders. 

Of course, when I went back to buy one a month later they were sold out. I’ve never seen them for sale anywhere since. 

That's not an insult, that is just a fact of life!
