New brass SS8's

Company "Train Garden" is producing brass SS8's. They look quite nice, not sure I'd dump brass money on one of these however. Five published road numbers and possibly one other with an extra version shown in the photographs. http://world.taobao.com/item/43322525464.htm?spm=a312a.7728556.141465117489...
