Yes they do. Click under HO. £1.60 a pair is reasonable really.

Probably a decade or so I used to figure on it costing £2.50 per car, £1 for metal wheels, £1.50 for couplers, so yeah, £1.60 per car is pretty good (probably some of that value is the bulk packs versus me using small packs back then)...

Wheelsets are more expensive, but then most cars now come with metal wheelsets!

When modellers bemoan “finescale”, they overlook things like this: finescale modellers did this as a matter of routine, and wrote about how it improved the running. As manufacturers started to realise that model railways is a hobby for serious adults, and no longer about train sets on the carpet, they started to pay more attention to fidelity and quality.

This is true across the hobby, in all popular scales, not just American outline H0. (Look at the Lionheart pannier tanks, the latest Grafar offerings, Hornby’s re-tooledFlying Scotsman, etc...)

The bulk packs are the way to go. Luckily although sadly I have many years supply of Kadees after our late friend Graham’s collection of Kadees came our way
