    Looks like he separated tenders from locos and is trying to sell them separate at outrageous prices.

    I wonder where they got the idea about Kadee? They must be trying to raise enough money to buy a new Lamborghini.

    Just when I thought I'd seen it all, I see that. :eek: There's absolutely no sense to any of it. eBay takes a lot of patience in this era, wading through hundreds of whacky and timeworn postings to find one that might be of interest.

    I have an HO saddle tank steamer that doesn't have a tender. An 0-6-0.

    As for our member John Moore putting it so
    eloquently here, on the ebay items above if for Tenders only.
    This is a case of B.Y. S. L . , KITB .Y. O. S.L. = 'build' KITBASH your Own Steam Locomotive!

    No see Spookshow http://www.spookshow.net/loco/riv462.html

    I had at least 2 of these in the early years and both died due to deteriorating frames (zmactitis).

    The minitrix pacific would be much better but not at that price either. Combine the minitrix with an allwheel pickup Bmann tender and you have a winner. I had four of these that were sold off as excess inventory a number of years ago.

    Perhaps those jokers don't even know what a tender is.

    When we see someone describing it was a "tender car", we certainly know they haven't a clue.

    That's the first time I've seen a 'snow blower' on the front of an engine. The two I've seen were there own cars with an engine to drive the blower and pushed by an engine. One had a picture of it being pushed by a steamer.

    I have seen a B unit or two that were converted but never an A unit. BN had a few that were nothing but electric power generation units for the rotary which was driven by electric but they were behind the plow unit which was separate. A quick search of Conrail snow equipment failed to show any beast like this.

    Dear "High I Q In NY" (the seller's handle):

    Where do I start?

    Probably by agreeing that the first four letters of your seller name are accurate, though the rest of it is highly suspect.

    My Best Offer is: move the decimal point over two places to the left, and divide the result by four. If you really do have a "High IQ" you should be able to do the math.
