    "N - GAUGE N - SCALE TRAIN CUSTOM LAYOUT - NEW - 5 - LEVEL - MAZE"
    "You will have to run your Train around most Levels several times before you learn where they go, even then you'll lose track at times. ~ ADD Terrain Lights for Night Running and it becomes Unbelievable !"
    "75 feet of ATLAS #80 Silver Flex Track" - "5 Levels & 4 Main Lines"

    I actually don't really want to make fun of this and love the unbridled enthusiasm. I believe it is a good example of how easy it is to get carried away with layout building without planning and guidance.
    Hoping/assuming this is not anyone here. If by chance the owner is out there, please don't be offended. I like how this takes "spaghetti bowl" to another level!

    Sooo, how many trains plunged to the cold hard cement floor below before the owner decided to put it up for sale?

    If there's a derailment on the layout you'll need one of those claw reach thingy to grab the rolling stock back up!

    Interesting that the terrain work bears a striking resemblance to meatballs and marinara sauce...

    Ummmmm, not poking fun, but do they really think they'll sell this for the price, even with a blue light?

    Oh, some knucklehead will buy it. A reasonable price is no object with some eBay sellers.

    And I have some Arizona ocean front property for a sale as well.. lol
    "Built good" That's why the joints are not perfectly in-line and i don't even want to know what the semi clear substance is on the bottom edge of the building?

    The same seller has similarly painted buildings in green and red.

    (-EDIT: oops, thought they were meant to be lumber loads, as I had "lumber" on my mind)

    -That is a bit steep in price. Maybe some lines painted on would convince me?

    Speaking of lumber: https://www.ebay.com/itm/N-Scale-ass...MAAOSwyTVcq9Cz
    These meticulously detailed scraps of wood, I mean assorted lumber loads speak for themselves. Reasonably priced set at $8.99 Get 'em while their hot!

    Opening bid started at $325. Forty bids later, human greed had asserted itself. ...

    But come on, they're Alaska Railroad, and even Moose has got to appreciate a railroad in Alaska!

    Bought at auction a KATO P42 Anniversary which advertised as DCC equipped. Arrived standard DC. I was annoyed, as I have been burnt on international auctions, and ebay/PayPal mumbo-jumbo by un-helpful Customer Service reps. Emailed seller, and realized description was an honest mistake. Spoke to one ebay rep (I don't have printer, so can't print return label) and she was a help on how to get label printed. I spoke to a second ebay rep, when I decided to keep item, and cancel return, and he was extremely helpful, even walking me through procedure. Both individuals had accents, so they likely were stationed out of USA, but their assistance was better than excellent. I know what it is to work internationally, and believe me, communicating in a different language, and still providing great service, is tough. Acquired P42 at a good price, so I kept unit, and ordered a TCS KOD8-A from Yankee Dabbler. In end, actually got what I wanted, for about average cost from ebay for a TCS P42 new. Maybe Customer Service is improving.
