No. In fact there's one just like it for sale on eBay for ~ $14.00.
I have a question? The hyperlinks clearly indicate EBay USA but you end up at EBay Canada! What's up with this??
Don't worry. That same link directs me to Ebay the Netherlands.
Ah Yes, Big Brother knows where you live.....Nyah Ha Ha
So, the price isn't bad, and I do know a gal who likes purple train cars, but they sort of look like they were left under a heat lamp, .
Looks like maybe a propane torch weathering technique.
From what I have seen, these types of offerings, at swap meets, usually are found on the dollar or less table.
Okay line up now. All this is yours for a mere $100:
That's great! It looks like it was unearthed ......
Darnit !!! And I just paid my rent !!! Maybe next time !!
Actually, it looks like a "Huge-Lot-Of"…Junk!
The original MT cars (then Kadee) were not shrink wrapped. Single MT cars are still not shrink wrapped, only the multi-car sets are. For the blue label cars the price is on the end label.
Looks like someone got into my train building.
Now 5% off and relisted for $95.00.
It looks like one of those "look what I found in grandpa's garage, behind the old table saw" finds.
Some people have no shame......
Here's one that I almost bid on. I'm always looking for TOFC flats and 4 for $.99 is great...but $23.75 shipping for 4 Atlas TOFC cars??? Not as bad as some of the posts here, but I almost broke my golden rule and didn't look at the shipping price before bidding (granted that's still only $6 a car, but I hate people who try to hide a minimum bid price by having a crazy shipping cost).
Note that the seller is located in Canada.
Have you checked international postage rates lately?
Here are some examples from the USA to Canada: https://www.usps.com/international/priority-mail-international.htm
$24 may seem "crazy", but it appears to be in line with the prevailing rate.
Thats international shipping to the US. That might not be far off the mark. The $.99 price however wont be anywhere near that in 6 days when it ends
