    When I was a kid in the early 1960s, my dad took me to a train store in NYC (I think it must have been the famous Madison Hardware) and I saw my first brass locos. I went home and told my friends that they were selling trains made out of gold!

    Sounds like this seller must have believed me!

    Good news! Evidently he has two of them, so if you get outbid on the first you can always snag the second one

    I love the "CUSTOM?" in the description.

    "Hey, this Stradivarius violin you're asking $3,500,000 for has a crack in it!"

    "Yes, sir, it's believed to be custom."
    ***

    "Why, this '57 Chevy Bel-Air convertible has a bent frame! And you're asking $80,000!"

    "Yeah, well, it's a custom bend, man."
    ****

    The Kato underframe is probably worth the $85 though.

    The "I was just about to throw this kitbashed custom weathered item away when I thought, 'hmmmm, some knucklehead might just buy this used piece of trash"" listing.

    Good feedback and reasonable S&H though...

    Unbelievable find!!
    This seller somehow found the junk pile of leftover modeling items my mom threw away 40 years ago! (at least it looks like the same pile... )
    Monogram 1/35 soldiers, HO and N scale trains and some 1/72 figures, all tossed in an old shoe box when I outgrew it. Yeah, that looks familiar.
    This must have an amazing story behind how it came to be found and listed on ebay for such a generous price.

    All this for only $175.00 WITH FREE SHIPPING! Don't even think about buying this out from under me.

    The seller had me at FREE SHIPPING. I could not resist, so I made an offer of $1.

    Should my offer be accepted... I'll send you the stuff, but you have to pay for shipping.

    It's a win-win, right!

    I think it's well worth the price!
    Especially for what the benchwork is made of. That's some of that high quality, professional grade, aircraft cardboard.

    The sad thing is, some poor, misguided fool will think the same and actually make an accepted offer on this. I'm not certain it would survive shipping intact.

    Cabinet-grade stuff that is, Allen. Check out the multiple layers!

    Imagine if Moose charged $300 per pound for each stampede. That would gross Moose $390,000 per instance -- nice work if you can get it!

    I wonder if they are all in focus?

    This isn't really a rant, but wow, its practically a whole layout sans benchwork....and if I hadn't already spent a ton of money, I'd seriously consider it....as a matter of fact, I'm considering it anyhow..lol...
