Just a heads up that Menard's Mystery Boxes are once again available online.
For those unfamiliar, a Mystery Box will get you a Menard's building, three pieces of rolling stock, a vehicle, and a bonus item, all for $99 ($88.11 after mail-in rebate!). These all may be "scratch and ding" items, so a little paint or glue may come in handy. As for what's in each box, I quote former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joaquin Andujar's favorite word in the English language: Youneverknow!
If you're interested, you can find the Menard's Mystery Box here. Note that Mystery Boxes seem to come and go (think this is the first time they've been offered in a couple years) so, if you want to roll the dice, don't delay! (Plus, at $99, it's cheaper than going to the casino and you're guaranteed to get home with something!)
If you're curious, here's what I got the last time I bought a Mystery Box. (From what I've seen, I think scoring a steam engine and remote was highly atypical! YMMV).
(Please note, I am neither a Menard's employee, paid endorser, or "influencer." I am simply sharing the availability of one of my favorite O gauge items with my fellow hobbyists!~)
