    What's amusing is that the first page of google search results lists a shop with three of those cars available in stock - and without the "big discount" upcharge.

    ...and in the description it says that both are N scale. $70 for an N scale dog and bone seems rather expensive to me...

    On the first: Yeah, I don't think that pile of old Bachmann is worth anywhere near $470; he probably realizes it too, and the price is high over the SHEER QUANTITY. I mean, that is a lot of trains/track/accessories.

    For the second: That listing is evidently intended as a way to sell a particular item to a particular customer, who has probably been sent a link to that listing. The dog/bone pic is just a placeholder so no one sees what's being sold. Probably a way to skirt eBay rules about making sales outside of eBay. Not sure why it's listed as N scale...

    Nope. Not for one second. I am pretty confident of my guesstamation of how they WILL package it. And trust me if they do use the old newspaper puffball method, or even packing peanuts, gently placed in a box, with the majority of stuff with no cases or packaging it isn't going to be pretty. Oh the things I've seen working in the transportation industry.

    I find it hard to criticize this guy. He has a talent not many people do. If you watch the N Scale FB Groups there aren’t many people out there who can build buildings at what I would call a decent level. He sold almost everything you showed at a good price. It is a price we would pay? No. But apparently the market was favorable to his work. His customers seem happy. Nothing to see here.

    There is always someone listing 'stuff' at crazy prices.
    There are also people who will pay crazy prices for 'stuff'
    We have all seen people pay 100's for something most of us won't give a dollar for.
    It's all part of "More eBay Humor"....or there would be no reason to have this thread...JMO
