    And why would I want an early clunky detailed caboose for that price when I could get a much nicer MT caboose with better details or better yet even cheaper by a few bucks a nice Kato Japanese style caboose with working directional marker lights.

    Once again someone did not check what they submitted. It is a nice looking caboose, might even worth a very few dollars perhaps. But it won't pass well as an 0-6-0.....

    If we were to get down on our knees and beg for a miracle, we'd wear out countless pairs of jeans and achieve no results. That garbage will plague us until the next ice age, and much longer. :censored::censored::censored::censored:

    I found mine in the closet of an apartment we were moving into several years ago. Almost threw it away but kept it to get a laugh every once in a while.

    I got one of the "outstanding" SP diesels as part of a package deal. Also kept for humor factor.

    I also got one of the SP gondolas with canisters, again as part of a group buy. The canisters were repurposed to my HO Scale (what?!?) switching layout and the gondola was repurposed to the landfill.

    oh, right… forgot about that. These things slip my mind… I guess it’s because my yacht is paid for.

    It's bargain priced in comparison to another posting by the same guy at $32.48 plus shipping for this one.

    It looks like the guy is in Japan. Anything modeled after a US prototype, new or used, is more expensive here than it is in the US. But only up to another $50-$100 or so tops. I only buy US stuff here, even from the Kato store in Tokyo, if I think I’ll break even when I include shipping costs and/or I know it’s out of production. So it isn’t crazy for it to be more expensive-just not this expensive. I don’t even think it should be this much if he’s trying to cover all the taxes and shipping costs from out of here.

    Even so, it’s a $100 loco and a $100 set of cars all day long. Not $600. Even imported stuff can be had for much cheaper. I know when I import a set from Japan in Tomix or Kato I’m going to pay a bit more for it, but I won’t pay a 300% markup on anything. That is the reason I still don’t have any Bombardier coaches for my NMRR train or the Evangelion Shinkansen.

    I should have kept all of these I owned from fifty years ago. I could have sold them and retired, long before now.

    $1,234,567 is not the sale price, he's selling the cars individually and lists the prices in the ad. I don't know what the reasoning for that is, but I see that sort of thing all the time on Facebook marketplace.
