    I was thinking similar. Yeah, I would not let that go in my house let alone on my layout!

    I call BS on that auction due to privacy listings. This thread has numerous mentions of money laundering, this may just be proof. I mean come on, they're 1st gen LL, and over the years I've seen loads of SPS. Rare my ass.

    Maybe someone wanted them just for the shells. Prepainted, pre-1964 SP&S with all the striping would be a bit of a PITG (gluteus) to decal, and they will likely fit over the better LL FA mechs without a hitch.

    So I was trying to figure out what is going on with this loco (I did not bid high enough to even be in the running). Is this customer painted or simply a Con-Cor unit with its shell partly off and some details missing (as well and the nose twisted)? https://www.ebay.com/itm/142785354520

    Maybe people are buying these for dioramas or something higher-value (and with less buildings) than a MRR layout...

    Damn ... $230+ for a kit, painted, weathered and decaled or not ... someone is out of their mind BUT not as far out of it as those who have made those bids!

    I think it was overpriced at the starting bid... but there is obviously a bidding war going on here....

    Very odd listings came up on Ebay:

    ebay odd.jpg Three different "sellers", all together, same high priced kit, same high price, very odd mix of other items, some strangely high prices mixed in...
    Sometimes makes you really wonder, "What the heck is going on here...?"

    I have assumed that there is lots of robotic mark-up & reposting going on -- I know that happens on Amazon, Walmart, etc... (Not sure if these are truly 3 different sellers all using the same approach or one seller working under 3 different names). This is why the internet is such a mess (I wish I could hide sellers on Ebay and Facebook Groups).
