    The 3rd listing may not be bad for a vintage collector, they look old but in serviceable condition... that being said the other 2 need new homes in the land fill.

    Just got a reply from this guy. Claims he sold one just like it for $50 and this one will sell for that too.

    My thoughts... good luck and I do feel sorry for the fool who will quickly be departed from his money.

    Probably could check the ebay recently sold filter to see if this seller is truthful... seems unlikely another one was posted or we would have panned that listing over the past few months.

    Yep... this seller did indeed find a suckerfish on July 19th to buy one of these for $50.00 plus charged $10.00 shipping.

    I guess that buyer will soon be dropping out of N scale... with bad memories.

    Replying to myself on this... I got a "thank you" back from the seller.

    1:1 model railroading... sound interesting... need to find about 100 acres of land to start... and then build a 100' x 300' train shed. I guess I will start small with this eBay stuff.

    Looks like N Scale Railroading magazine has had this layout featured at some point. Owner may just have gotten tired of running it and is trying to sell it while still fresh in the minds of potential N scalers who saw it in print. Looks great though... and already DCC prepped.

    It's an HO car. This is a hobby shop in southern Washington State. Well known in the region, and popular. Reading the ad, it's clearly a major goof when he was composing. Gotta proof read before submitting!

    Wow.. amazing that the previous buyer didn't what to double-head with his July 19 purchase... maybe that buyer was not satisfied... hmmm...
