Did it sell?
Not sure if it sold. It was taken down a few days after posting. I didn’t add it to my watch list.
Here's one for you ! > Minitrix 2-6-4 Pennsylvania Steam VG+ Condition No Box Should Be Serviced | eBay ... Since when did LIMA become MINITRIX ?
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.
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.
Wishful thinking? lol

Not necessarily eBay related, but I see we're on Page 404...
404 - Good deal not found
I'm not sure what to make of this
Everything he has - $999.00 - very strange.
"But, Honey - I put everything on EBay -- no one wants to buy my stuff"
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??
Everything except this item: https://www.ebay.com/itm/265135123605
Here is his reason why he did this, per-say. He seems a little bit upset.
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.
All , Not sure if these would count here
>*Rare* GALOOB MICRO MACHINES TRAIN TRESTLE *Minty* NEW and SEALED 47246649006 | eBay
>Bachmann 53251 N Norfolk & Western 4-8-4 Class J Steam Locomotive #602 22899532516 | eBay
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.
OK. I have been around a bunch of decades now, but just what is "*Minty*"??? Sounds more like the flavor of a breath mint or toothpaste than anything model railroad....
