Hello Trainboard Members ! First I want to give a big shout out to Charlie for doing such a great job taking care of Trainboard, big thanks to Charlie. The reason for my post....From 2009 to 2013 I bought ALOT of N Scale items on X-xay as well new items in stores or from manufacturers. now that I am liquidating because the Lay-Out Dream is not going to come to fruition, I am selling the N Scale items on the well known on line sight we have a love hate relationship with. Yes, you know the name. To sell an item, I have to visually inspect with hi power magnifying glass, test run, take pictures, list, answer communications, package carefully, drive to P.O. leave feedback, and then hope and pray that everything arrives in fine order after losing on shipping. Never did I realize it would come to this...LOL ! Now that this process is in action, I have come to realize that many, many items I bought and accepted back then, even left + feedback for, were not represented correctly. My fault. I have so many Invoices for items that were represented as new that after now... very, very careful examination are indeed not new. With the naked eye, one might think an item was new, but after looking at wheels with a Micro Lens, I find 65% of everything I bought that was listed as new... was indeed run, maybe lightly run, but still run. It is all my fault for not going to the same length to examine an item when receiving it. Now, realizing this now as I am now selling it. Now that I am selling it, I am finding out 3 to 6 years later that I might have allowed myself to be dooped, again my fault for not inspecting the item with extreme scrutiny, I was just so happy to get what I had desired. At this point it doesn't matter, it's too late, and the reason for my post is for me, it not to matter. I now know to make it a priority to inspect with extreme detail, when selling an item, too late for the buying part, that isn't ever going to happen again, whew, thank goodness. With this post I am not looking for a fight, or to be beat down, I am just letting you know how I feel today after listing items for 30 days. I already feel shame, please don't make it worse....LOL !
