I bought a MTH California Zephyr set off Ebay without realizing the observation was not icluded. The set is mint but I wanted a complete set. I am new here and may be in the wrong forum. If anyone has any information how I can get one of these that would be great.

I think you may be stuck watching eBay...I don't know if there are O Scale yahoo groups where you can post a WTB, but if there are that would be another avenue for you.

The BLI CZ cars are out now. I've just ordered two D&RGW cars I need to complete my Rio Grande Zephyr fleet, the Silver Colt Dome-coach and Silver Pine 48 seat flat top coach.
