    As I stated in a earlier post ebay or whatever one would like to call it the $ are definitely outrageous and good for a laugh!

    In regard to eBay photos, I've noticed that some allow you to click and enlarge portions of the picture(s) for detailed viewing, yet other photos don't provide the feature. Is this based on photo resolution? My eBay photos are uploaded at 500 to 600KB and somehow always allow enlargement and at no extra cost.

    The distant photos posted by the Seller of the expensive M-T cars allow no enlargement.

    Those are insane prices. Looks like someone is trying to drive Kadee / Micro-Trains cars into the realm of Pre-war Lionel?

    The Kadee/MT collecting craze began to soften way back during the mid-1990's. While there are some folks are still gathering them very seriously, they are a small number compared to those long ago peak years. The market for such prices is essentially gone and has been for a long time now. These prices are simply living in a bygone era.

    Heck, even at a train show, I was seeing some cars for $40 about 3 tables away from the exact same cars for $15. Same condition. And the "factory air" probably leaked out of all of them at least 20 years ago.

    This MINITRIX UB-25 N SCALE TESTED | eBay has recently sold for $35.00 .. clearly one can see it's not a UB-25, I say Thanks again ebay for the lack of knowledge by some sellers and the laugh.

    DAY-umm, Say-umm; I put up lots of three cabooses for ninety nine cents more than that, and, not only do they have all of their wheels, but also often they are MT wheels and many of them even have MT couplers.........and I can not get the first bid.

    It's the rarely modeled sunroof option used by railroads in warmer climates! RSD stands for Road SUNROOF diesel.

    Watch out for those low bridges! They can trim off a few inches, quickly! :) Ha ha.

    Looks like the seller made a mistake on this one. If you look at his other items there is a listing for another pair of custom painted MILW hoppers for $50 and a lot of 15 for $330. His prices on the other listings are worth looking at IMHO. I've added a couple to my watch list. Now to watch the bidding wars begin. But you never know. I might be able to pick one up at a price my wallet approves of. (y)

    Whew. At that cost, I'd expect delivery by armored car.
