Presidential Series - N Scale Boxcar Collectors, this is the first one issued, (#1 of 200). As far as I know, you can only obtain one of these by winning it from Micro-Trains. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to answer in their contest, and this just arrived in the mail. I am grateful to MTL for the car they sent me, but as I only model prototype stuff, this collector car is better off in the hands of a collector. In addition to the car, the box also includes a presidential button and a signed "1 of 200" card in the original box. This car is dead mint new and the box is unopened. They will only award 5 of these per month, but t will only be one #1 car! PayPal only, Shipping to Lower 48 US only. No exceptions! I expect payment within 24 hours of close of auction. I will pack properly and ship USPS Priority. From the Micro-Trains website:
That’s right; if you think you know the answer to the trivia question, submit your answer by email to for a chance to win a Presidential ‘Oath of Office’ Car for free! This limited edition car will display the Presidential Oath of Office and the signatures of all the Presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama. Micro-Trains will award 5 lucky winners with this limited edition car each month.

So How Exactly Will This Work?

We’ll use the first month’s ‘mystery’ president (the July release) for an example:

The June Micro-News/Web will announce the release of the June Presidential Car, but will also include a trivia question about the July Presidential Car. You submit your answers to the question by email to no later than the 15th of that month (so June 15th in this example). You must include your first and last name and mailing address so we can ship the car directly to you if your name is selected in the drawing. All correct answers submitted by the 15th of the month will be entered into the drawing for a free Presidential Oath of Office Car. Five names will be drawn as the winners for the month of July. All other entries will be discarded. If your name is drawn, you will be notified by email the first business day after the 15th and will receive your free car direct from Micro-Trains during the month of its release. Your first name, last initial and state will be posted on our website for 30 days as one of our five winners for that month. This process will be repeated each month.
