by shaving i mean you file the cast steps off, drill holes with micro drill and install wire grabs (painting it all later). i thought you knew this since you were talalking about superdetailing. where do you buy them? hobby store :) but seriously you can jus cut and bend your own from steel wire

Ithought the trainman series you had to buy extra pieces like air tanks and what not to get them to look realistic, is this not the case?

do the ends of the cars have a lot of detail or just a basic detail?

I'm all for superdetailing locos and having some cars with details that occur on things like Rapido and Red Caboose, but I seriously wonder how many people walk around a layout and pick up a car to see how detailed it is underneath, especially if it looks pretty good from the top and side.... (not to mention actually runs well on the track) Just my rant, but I would spend my money on making it work well (couplers and wheelsets)....
