    I had to laugh when I noticed under "Item Specifics", among other things it says "Warning: No eating."

    Actually, those appear to be poor knockoffs of Del Prado. The Del Prados I've seen have pretty decent detailing, the ones above, definitely not.

    Shipping flextrack this way will certainly save on shipping.

    I'm guessing that broken N Scale caboose smokestacks have been a bane for modelers? Advanced materials engineering has found a solution for only $1.10 Ea. Save more by buying in bulk.

    You can buy an entire package of caboose stacks from MT parts for what one of these cost.

    $12.99 for the actual MTL car... OK, maybe.
    $10.00 for "Economy Shipping"... No thanks.

    This is an example of how sellers are trying to deal with eBay's seller fees-- add on to the postage costs. Except not only is this a large shipping cost (and nothing said about combined shipping) but I (and probably you) get to pay sales tax on that shipping as well.

    HiSpeed strikes again!

    Before I bid on anything on that site, now I have to check the shipping costs. $10 shipping for one MT car is becoming very common, but sometimes they will post something very cheap with the shipping cost being the value of the item hoping to fool someone into buying it.

    USPS Flat Rate Priority is only $8.45. Free shipping box. And that includes insurance. It would be entertaining to know how that seller defines "economy".

    Economy for the seller, perhaps?

    Ha! I don't think I've ever seen that.
    I noticed on the back it has a guarantee of satisfaction, I wonder if anybody sent the lcocomotive back complaining that it doesn't run:LOL:.
