Also, don't run it on more than six volts...
Does it come with a supply of 1:160 uranium?
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.
If the mailman comes to the door wearing a hazmat suit...carrying a box...you will know your N-scale-Three-Mile-Island-Nuclear-Power-Plant has arrrived !!
"Hard to find"? Yet a quick search shows one for bid at 1/3 cheaper but still outrageous at $99.99.
Its a REAL nuclear power plant...works in place of a generator (very important if you live in Calif.).
Ok all, here's one for you ! N gauge Micro Trains Kadee Shell Oil Single Dome Tank Car Lot of 6 | eBay ... note the $ .
The price on this isn't too bad, but I figure the use of the word "groovy" in the description, calling the couplers "hooks" and the less-than-ideal photography qualifies this for a spot:
I guess I never realized this before, despite being so obvious ...
... "dummy" locos don't need a fuel tank
But they do need a weight to compensate. I need to study a prototype dummy more closely the next time I come across one.
And it's 'Nifty' too.
Minitrix Pennsylvania 3921 N Scale Works -22 | eBay MINITRIX Eh? Yeah right, Looks more like a LIMA.. imported by AHM .
Probably been stored in a Minitrix box, happens all the time. Better in the wrong box than no box at all.
Another one already! Honestly, I'd be half-tempted to buy this anyway for the novelty, but I'm not sure it would fit in my tunnels.
Though now I'm kinda curious if anything remotely resembling this particular rotary ever existed. Somehow it wouldn't surprise me too much.
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,
THey use the para scope to see...
I don't even recognize what engine this is supposed to be a model of...
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.
It is an oldie from around sixty some years ago. Looks to be a Revell version of a Baldwin VO-1000. Think 1960's....
Hey guys- Look what I built while drunk last week?
