    As I recall, if something doesn't sell, the seller can repost it for free (it used to cost more to repost so people didn't have stupid starting bids) so there is now no incentive to sell it for a lower price because they can just relist it forever...

    Which this always has me wondering- do they really want to sell it?

    It seems most of what gets displayed is west coast lines. Then some from the east and south. o_O

    That Conrail rotary ended up going pretty high. $50.89, waaay higher than the $20.25 I was willing to spend on it.

    Looking at their other ads, they are offering the shell for this same engine at an additional $19.99, and the motor for it at $24.99. That's just shy of $65.00 bucks for an old single truck drive... And the trucks are not there to buy, in order to have a complete unit. This is a rather cute way of squeezing money from a junk box five dollar swap meet item!

    A certain seller of paper freight cars sides for use with... well, I don't know, actually, has this to say to negative feedback:

    "Buyer violates Ebay policy by not contacting Sellor for refund or replacement before leaving feedback for item all other Buyers are happy with"

    Considering said seller's current feedback rating of 94.8 percent, I'm not sure that "all other Buyers are happy."
