Probably got the price from these two rare very prototypical examples:
That's the wrong shade of yellow lettering on the PRR unit (ducking)
Only $25 a month for 12 months.
I’m not sure what the “prototype” for these things might be. I guess if you want yard filler and don’t mind the old couplers they might be worth something...
The wood screws! Really? This would be fun especially on a DCC track IF theses screws made contact with the track. It would turn these wood gondolas into kindling.
I respectfully disagree. There is nothing of value here.
As I mentioned, it only worth to start a fire in the fireplace. But then again that is too much money for it.
After reading the posts on these N scale train cars lot Hand Made Gondolas Used Unfinished Look!! | eBay , I believe the only thing worth salvaging here are the Trucks and the wood screws which could be recycled into other broken household items.. such as a chair with missing screws , desk, kitchen drawer, a bookshelf or anything else which needs repairs. Or that ever elusive fake drawer in the kitchen, you know which one .. the one under the sink which has a mind of its own . As for the Trucks they could be used on other freight cars which are in need of repairs.
The seller has a 100% positive feedback rating, but after trying to sell junk like that, I think he should have his rating downgraded to about 50% as a penalty for wasting bandwidth! Same goes for those who list the Reader's Digest train junk!
"One man's junk is another man's treasure." In this case, one man's junk is providing humorous entertainment for many.
I agree. This is the only possible value.
Is it me or do others agree that the paint a bit off on this one for the asking price?
Interesting write up about BNRR #1876: https://www.freedomtrain.org/american-freedom-train-consist-burlington-northern-diesels.htm
Right, Kato-Kobo did this same engine (1876) but the finish was what you'd expect for the ~$200 asking price (I think retail was actually a little more)
AS BoxcabE50 and ri straw state here one person junk another' treasure .. or in this case a Kitbashers Gold mine with parts from ones parts box!

I have several saved searches at eBay. After much frustration seeing the same Sellers reposting the same overpriced junk for months on end ad nauseum, I discovered that I could blacklist them and save time. Only a dullard would set up the same garbage to appear hundreds of times at the same price.
