    I liked the Winnie The Pooh lithograph, but I didn't like it that much!

    As for the Tyco set, yikes-a-rooni. (That's a lower value invective than "woo woo woo.")

    Wasted some time scrolling through that person's store. It's a nice get-rich-quick idea. Most of what is there would not even move at a yard sale. A lot of thrift store donation items. Unreal the prices, and noticed that most all were marked down or best offer. So it looks like they are aiming high and hoping to pull someone upward with any 'best offer'.

    I noticed that too. My best offer is "move the decimal point two places to the left." :ROFLMAO:

    Not only the wrong car pictured, but the claim is condition of C-7: "...No Missing Parts..." Yet I see one that truck is completely invisible. Hmmm...

    I sent a message about the G&D car in the BREX listing. A few weeks ago the same seller had HO scale kits listed in the N Scale category. That was fixed!

    Over 60,000 transactions for a three person family-owned business.
    Their four year old is keyboarding product info into eBay listings.
    Give the kid a break. He/she is trying.

    Why did I stop using 'e-bay' many years past? It is filled with so much humor.
    I must return.

    Agreed! Built in Austria by Roco. These were quite nice with a can motor and flywheels, and were a welcome addition to N Scale. Atlas offered a weight kit shortly after their introduction, but it was hardly needed. I still run my factory paint LVs and the pair I painted in L&NE. :) But at $100?! Just a waste of bandwidth.

    Don't forget that Ebay is used by a lot of international buyers who don't get the same opportunities to purchase 'local' deals. The GP-15, although looking a mess, is likely an easy makeover job and I've restored worse. Sadly this guy doesn't ship to NZ, but many do, though shipping costs and delays can take away some of the 'bargain' potential. That GP-15 would look great in Conrail Blue, working the Dover Drill and M&E interchange on my soon to be built Morristown & Erie.
    Cheers
