    Not sure if it sold. It was taken down a few days after posting. I didn’t add it to my watch list.

    Just curious since I have one of them too... just how crazy high are these selling for??
    Mine is straight DC... what are those ordinary models selling for?

    I inadvertently posted the link for the photo instead of the link to the eBay listing, and the edit option is gone.
    Here's the listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-N-SCA...C-Spirit-of-1776-U25B-Locomotive/294037534288
    The seller has a "buy it now" price of $480.
    The Atlas insert has the item number for the DC version, but one of the photos shows a sticker on the bottom of the jewel case indicating that it is the DCC version.
    Maybe the item numbers shown on the Atlas archive page are in error.
    http://archive.atlasrr.com/NLoco/arc-nu25b.htm
    The seller's description states "DCC ready".
    The original MSRP was $90/DC and $135/DCC.
    Also, the loco is not quite as old as I thought it was, having been released in 2002.

    Not necessarily eBay related, but I see we're on Page 404...

    404 - Good deal not found

    I saw that yesterday when I was looking at some On30 scale stuff. I mean, he does have one tank car and one engine at reasonable prices ($13.34 and $151.21 w/ DCC), although his shipping is ridiculous ($14 from Pennsylvania to Washington?)

    I was looking at his Z-scale stuff, all at $999.00 each!

    Must've been a late night, didn't realize he clicked the same price on everything??

    Here is his reason why he did this, per-say. He seems a little bit upset.o_O

    Man - I'll say he is a bit upset. Perhaps, he should visit his place of worship. Just a thought -

    Kind of took the humor out of: More E-Bay Humor.

    I saw this and the accompanying disclaimers. This is really too bad-- I've bought on eBay before from him and he seems reasonable.

    Moderators, feel free to "woo woo woo" this but I think I'm OK... the same seller mentions that he has, let us say, alternate forms of purchasing from him that don't involve "e" and "Bay" in the same sentence. I can verify that's correct.

    Just to show that It's Not Just eBay -- although I wouldn't be surprised if eBay was a reference point for these prices. This was at an antique / flea market / co-op my wife and I visited yesterday. Interestingly, the same case contained the largest amount of TT Gauge (!!!!) I've ever seen in one place.

    I didn't even know eBay had a "rare scales" section. Is that for all the stuff that doesn't actually have a scale?
    The trestle price definitely looks ridiculously high. It's a TOY, and all you get is an add-on to an existing set.

    The Class J, on the other hand, looks reasonable, considering it's a steam engine with DCC and Sound. I know Bachmann tends to overprice things, but from what I've heard and read on Spookshow, this engine is probably worth at least what he's asking.
