    Looking at their other items, I did see one at $19.99- which naturally is not even worth it. A silver FM shell & railings offering. Except at least two of the railings are broken and the cab glass is also painted over.

    Looks like some of this stuff came straight out of the trash dumpster. I am sorely tempted to put a picture of my trash can full of garbage on a hot and steamy day up on Ebay and charge an ridiculously high price for it.

    Google Fleischmann 9106: length is 30.6 inches, apparent list price is $15.29, one store in NC has only one for $13.76 and one store in FL has ten at $11.50
    each. It may be worth $25 to someone, but it is available elsewhere for less (depending on shipping charges).

    Just for fun, I searched EBay for one of my 'usual' searches. It appeared that there were substantially fewer auction listings. Eight pages of matches but only one page of auction listing (and I only bother with the auctions since the BIN prices are always more than I am willing to pay).

    Glad that this one didn't get past me -- a fifty year old Arnold Rapido FA for only $189. :rolleyes: This wasn't a terrible model for its era, with decent performance and a metal body shell for great traction, but the decimal point needs to be moved one place to the left.

    This is the shell I mentioned earlier in the week. Windows painted over, broken railings. Definitely not worth anywhere close to the asking price.

    Check with the shop which is probably the largest Fleischmann importer in the USA, Reynauld's. Their site shows less than ten dollars, each.

    That is the Fleischmann 9106 which I show about just north of $15 at reynaulds. At this moment rocousa has the best price ($11.50) on that but with shipping for a single piece you'd be back to ebay territory prices.

    Oops. I was looking at the one without roadbed. Still, at $15.00, far less than on eBay.

    Yeah, anytime I see free shipping on ebay the price is usually jacked up to cover shipping costs.

    ALERT: another roofless body shell just listed with only 10 days left to bid and it's a beaut, missing step and all. CSX should sue for defamation.

    I can't help but to be curious as to where all of these cab roofs go...? :confused:

    Heaven only knows, but @John Moore suggested that they'll show up later. :ROFLMAO:
