    If it was me, I would of purchased a new loco. Then have someone capable of painting and detailing it. It probably would come out cheaper and better than that one. I'm aware of the variables like getting the right paint colors and decals, but that $436 price is out of control. IMO

    What kept me from hiting the $200 limit was the handrails appeared to be damaged and also the chevrons should be the 5 inch instead of the older 3 inch from the early onset of this paint era. I did purchased a different What if locomotive about two years ago, from a different seller. The details will blow the socks off these locomotives though I paid less than $200.
    Cheers!

    Sorry to be so technical on this. But seriously over $400 each for two locomotives! Dang I wish I had the extra cash on hand.

    This guy seems a little overly optimistic - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Overland-Mo...AAAOSwBTVgY3aB

    $135K for 227 brass locomotives? That's nearly $600 each and a lot of them are Hallmark crap that aren't worth even 1/3 that much...

    And for 135K you would think he would throw in the Schnabels and Jordan spreaders. I wonder if someone will really buy them all in one lot.

    What I don't understand about listings like this is why don't they get good, clear pictures of the items and a list of everything up front BEFORE the post it.
    Seems like one would draw more legit views and bids?

    Doing it this way I think, would cast a shadow on your reputation.

    @Jugtown Modeler Maybe it's for the "N scale" high speed hallmark sets?
