    Just buy a pair Beer Goggles and save yourself the morning hangover.
    Then everything will look better, even the junk that gets listed.

    Same sort of person calls a lawn mower a "Honda mower" just because it has a Honda motor on it, regardless of who made the cutting deck.

    If I was to make a guess, I'd say it's an Atlas caboose with Micro-Trains trucks that still have the pizza cutter flange wheelsets.
    I think the funnest part of the entire auction is the “Like new condition. No box.” statement.

    As a FYI:

    This is an Atlas Caboose (Top) compared to a Micro-Trains Caboose (Bottom)

    There is a bit of a difference between the two. ;)

    If they had used the word "equipped", it might have helped a little. But.... :rolleyes:

    And on another Note:
    Looking at the end of purchasing anything when the 'e-tailler' sets a minimum 50$US postage fee for overseas delivery. Just not equitable pal... that makes purchases 4 x the US value. I know a small packet can be done for $10US. But these crazies insist on 8x volume packaging to get a 2lb box with 10oz contents.
    never again....

    A quick search turned up at least one dealer who has two of the Athearn cabooses in stock at MSRP.
    The Atlas caboose looks to be more scarce, but the eBay seller does have the "make offer" option.

    If you look real close at the number it is 999056, a typical Santa Fe caboose number with the three nines in front. Above it you can make out the "ATSF" under a coat of paint.

    Ick. Someone missed putting this in the fifty cent bin, where it belongs.

    Atlas should do another run of the Magor C&O hacks. A number of road names have become nearly impossible to find.

    I purchased both the #11 and #17 L&HR cabooses from my LHS when they were first released for $13.95 per caboose. This is the downside of the hobby today, everything has a limited production run and if you miss it the first time around it looks like you're going to pay the price. :(
