Wow! It appears that brass values continue to thrive, especially for locomotives that haven't been produced in plastic or those that would be difficult to produce otherwise. I guess owners somehow engineer DCC conversions for many of them.
This mayn't be ebay however I believe the picture should speak for its self !
Did it have the limited edition solid gold frame?
And in a related story, I see eBay has "partnered" with SquareTrade for "product protection."
WOW! Or should I say OUCH?
Looks like it's on a launch pad getting ready to go to the Space Station. I will post a photo of it
docked to station in my other thread. Haha
OK, since when did Items like this become manufactured by LIMA ?https://www.ebay.com/itm/LIMA-20026...443149?hash=item26415e194d:g:8p8AAOSwRXFfG0C0 and the JEWEL CASE is clearly marked LL- LIFE LIKE!
It could be mis-boxed. But the price is quite uninteresting...
As is the jewel case. For $88, the jewel case ought to be usable. Spend $2 for crying out loud.
And I bet the actual Locomotive is MODEL POWER .
I wonder if anyone takes the time to flip over the loco and read the name plate on the bottom which is usually stamped with the manufacture.
Probably would not help their cause to be truthful...

That can be heavy physical labor and many folks apparently shy away from such an onerous task.
Sorry, been there and done that. So now I have no faith that eBay cares enough to make things right. If it was eBay's policy to refund ALL charges when a seller sends the wrong item and I return it, then they would have some credibility.
So, I just did not bother to leave any feedback for the crook who not only would not send the correct item with no additional shipping or tax, but also raised the price to reorder after I returned the item! This irresponsible crook has a 100% positive rating, so I know for sure that eBay is not reflecting his actual level of buyer satisfaction. He has done his homework to figure out how to game the system. And, because eBay is always changing their rules, I am not about to try to keep up with the crooks in the gaming business.
And, because eBay will not accept feedback without a "comment", what am I supposed to do if I there really was a problem, lie? So, I either leave no feedback or state a fact in "positive" feedback that can serve to warn others. If that is perceived as being "a negative comment with a positive rating", then eBay can ban me for life (and lose money). Since eBay has proven beyond any doubt that money is more important to them than ethics, I am not going to worry about them doing that. And, any seller who is stupid enough to raise the issue will end-up with a bigger ding than I get, because what I leave as comment is fact that could easily be used to open a case against the buyer - it just wasn't worth my time to do so. If some seller is stupid enough and arrogant enough to make it worth my time, I will be sure to make them regret it.
But, I am also sure that eBay will not put the outcome in their ratings. Ratings are useless, exactly because eBay has policies to force them to be positive. So, as always, it is "buyer beware".
2008 was when I pulled the plug from being an active seller. Just because of this idiotic one sided system being activated.
N Scale Jewel Cases. Bachman/Atlas/Aurora | eBay $5.00 and $14.00+ For Shipping ..What in the Blazes on the Mailing ! I would give the person $5.00 plus $3.00 for the Mailing ..Aka shipping .
Last thing I got from eBay was 2 weeks ago... not model train related. Bought some 60+ year old travel maps for Washington DC and Miami... lived there in DC 60 years ago.
Still cost a lot for stuff that used to be given away for free at service stations!!!

Technically not eBay, but still just as crazy:
This is why I don't look for trains on Amazon.
Wow, $75 for a non-operating unit!
