    The item description probably has the weirdest part of the listing. It says to email the seller if you have a special request, such as having it shipped in a box. How else do you ship model trains? Just throw them directly into the back of the mail truck? I didn't think a cardboard box was a special request. That seems more like the default method if anything.

    Wow. Selling it for less than a bazillion dollars. It sure seems like a great buy to me. Not. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Probably been stored in a Minitrix box, happens all the time. Better in the wrong box than no box at all.

    As the rotary mechanism is quite a bit taller and wider than the locomotive that it is attached to, how does the crew view what is in front of the plow?

    Have someone stand on the right-side ladder while the plow is in operation?

    Otherwise, presuming debris doesn't actually stop the rotary blade's movement, I guess you must simply run over whatever obstructions you come across and sort out the mess afterwards.

    There's also the issue of snow working its way through the triangular shaped cutouts that are located in between the rectangular entry chute and the circular blade housing,

    M-T Item 65092 was a similar and highly prized collectable set when it was created by M-T in the early 1980s. A 65092 set sold in July for on eBay $102.50. It contained six cars (SCCX 1102, SCCX 1104, SCCX 1107, SCCX 1112, SCCX 1116 and SCCX 1119). This Seller's $500 posting isn't that set; I'm not sure what he's conjured up. Just another overpriced, bandwidth-wasting eBay posting, and with lousy photography.
