    Well, the listing might say "Conrail Powered Southern" but the model itself clearly says "Southern Pacific", as does the box. Not sure where he got Conrail from.

    I think that the "ACIF" is intended to be P"ACIF"IC. A weird mispell.

    SP 10 was in Texas where it was flooded in the early 2ks and almost destroyed after it sat waist deep in salt water for days. A local (Sacramento) group was able to get ahold of it before it was scraped and it is currently being restored in Woodland, CA. They even have a FB page.

    https://www.facebook.com/SPRDC10/

    Wait, their FB page says it was moved to Rocklin in July 2020...anyone know where (since I live 5 miles from Rocklin but I haven't seen it anywhere here).

    While the Kato RDCs ran much better, the Concor RDCs where originally made by Kato WAY back in the day. If I didn't already have the Concor AND the Kato version (Kato is awaiting SP numberboards and decals), I would seriously consider bidding on it.

    Did anyone see the brass collection for $135k? 227 brass diesels, a bit out of my price range.

    I am puzzled by the bidding shown. Value at a swap meet is maybe a couple of dollars for that batch. Very strange...

    High Speed was a free promo that Readers Digest once had. While they are 'N scale' (meaning the scale is correct) the engines are unpowered and the couplers don't 'work'. They are the bain of my existence since every 'southern pacific' search on EBay turns up hundreds of these junk trains...most of them priced as if they are 'rare' and 'collectable'.

    As laughable as the "High Speed" J-class stuff is, I haven't seen an ARR version before.

    Methinks that there must be some radio button I'm missing on the selling page:
    0 Condition is "New."
    0 Condition is "Like New."
    0 Condition is "Used."

    As if that is all that is required.

    Allow me to translate:

    "New" - mind the quotation marks
    "Like New" - doesn't run
    "Used" - doesn't run

    Actually that's not a bad price to start. People (not me!) pay more than that for Trainworx complete trucks. They do command those crazy prices. Just search on eBay for completed auctions of Trainworx trucks and many are North of $300. :eek:

    Some people just have too much money on their hands and others are hoping to find those people...
