    I hadn't even thought of the BIN phenomenon, which drives high prices even higher.

    All -
    It isn't Just the High Speed (China) EMD GP35 & 4-4-0 American receiving - critical acclaim - from us here this section, forum on ebay I would add Items like these N scale rail cars Chessie System Caboose and B & O grain car for parts or repair | eBay as well . Since the seller wants or insist the buyer to calculate the $.. I would offer $9.50 ! not the $29.50. Please see Link for > N scale rail cars Chessie System Caboose and B & O grain car for parts or repair. Items Like these above ebay needs to inform the sellers which have them.. You are Limited up to $15.00 No more.

    Just my Opinion .

    $0.950? $.00950? No, even that's too much when shipping and tax are added :D

    It seems that the roof goblins have struck again, followed up by a nasty case of truck-itis.

    Thanks @WIrail ! :ROFLMAO: This same seller has a cornucopia of dazzling N Scale bargains, including these, each on an individual listing.

    When it comes to smashed "Sante Fe" shells, eBay is THE source.

    There might be some demand for those old Rivarossi passenger cars maybe? I'm amazed too.

    This was my guess as well. Otherwise it makes no sense at all.

    I would say that the cars are driving the price. Depending on what mechanism is under the loco it could be a good buy.

    If i read the blurred Road name as u.p. RR that may be the reason for driving the $ .

    Condition: For parts or not working Obviously... we have a 1962 ARNOLD BALDWIN VO or a BALDWIN S series Locomotive. I would say worth $3.00 to $5.00 not $ 39.00 . If one has to Calculate the Shipping it is probably not worth the effort.

    Handrails are busted off in front and damaged in back. Overpriced for sure. I have one of these in C&NW, restored with parts from mine from 1968 and another bought at a show for maybe $5. Being my first N Scale locomotive, I'm happy to have it in running condition with no broken parts.

    Speaking of Arnold Rapido, there's this at $14.50 + Shipping from a high volume estate sale reseller who hasn't a clue.

    upload_2022-5-28_8-42-3.png

    and this collection of two busted out Arnold switches and a rerailer for $25 + Shipping.

    plus this "Vintage Arnold Rapido Santa Fe Diesel" which isn't, with a BIN at $60.
