    Here' one or two that I've listed here before...a long time ago. They still haven't sold and they are still being listed at the stupid high prices they haven't sold for the last forever. At what point do you start to think that maybe the price is just too high?

    It looks like its a 'layout' with just two loops of track...on a cardboard base (!) and most of the 'buildings' are from photographs and glued to card stock.

    "FREE SHIPPING EXCLUDING OREGON WASHINGTON CALIFORNIA IDAHO MONTANA WYOMING UTAH COLORADO NEW MEXICO TEXAS OKLAHOMA NEBRASKA KANSAS NORTH DAKOTA SOUTH DAKOTA ARIZONA NEVADA UTAH THE NAMED EXCLUDED STATES $200. FREE SHIPPING TO TRUCKEE"

    Last time I checked, Truckee was still in California.

    I GUESS that Godzilla is about N scale sized but adding all of his friends would really make a destructive scene. Maybe if you have just started a layout and have no scenery, having Godzilla and his friends could explain the lack of anything else...but at this price you could buy plenty of buildings already built.

    I'm closing on three quarters century. 72 on 'Labor Thanksgiving Day' (JPN).

    I had one of the 0-4-0s and surprisingly it was a great runner, but it had tender pickup. But for the lot of them a very ridiculous price. All of them are low tech and older than dirt and in fact look like they were retrieved from under a dirt pile. I might cough up $20 for the 0-4-0 if it actually runs.

    Darn it, and I live in Texas. I was really on the hunt for a layout going for 2 K notes with a cardboard base. Those buildings really seal the deal.

    Another example of an extra four percent for buyer protection. Nothing to see here, move along...

    Well, that's one "positive" about eBay messing with the Model Railroad category (among many others): you get to see humor in multiple scales!

    While that may seem insane, they do actually sale for that much sometimes.

    I have what it would take to make it a 4-0-4. Power on one end. But it would have to be an HO.
