I went back and looked at the thread Art started. I can see the appeal of this train to a well-heeled TCA member with an interested wife. (If this is coming off as sexist, I apologize in advance) The color is unusual in tinplate- dare I say pretty? And Agatha Christie is a great favorite among avid readers- I count my other half in that group. She devours it.

This was part of MTH's last run of tinplate 400E passenger sets back in 2018-19.  MTH made several limited sets that could be ordered through his dealers.  However, this special run of 8 only was offered only through the TCA and you had to enter a raffle to win the chance to buy one of the 8 sets.  Since they have come out I have never seen one put up for sale.

Being sold as a lottery I would imagine a few were sold on speculation. I think they will sell for way above MSRP in the near future.

Thank you for clarifying this. I remember seeing these and the others in the catalog. I still lust for these. As a note I was introduced to Sidetrack Hobbies because of these gems. Al has more than satisfied my need for pretty modern standard tinplate. Well almost.
