    If I recall correctly I remember purchasing 6 of these Minitrix 2072 | 2-10-0 | Pennsylvania | Very Good Boxed Condition | eBay which were in a shoebox back in the 1990's, I believe I paid maybe $5.00 at one of those so-called train shows from someone who said they Ain't run. After getting them home with no tinkering on them they ran what he guy didn't tell me was there was 1. 0-6-0 and 2. 4-6-2'S in pieces under the box which held the 6. 2-10-0's . however the 0-6-0 and the 4-6-2's took time and patience. I still have two oF the 6 here in florida.

    Wait, there's a new roofless addition to the Seller's listings. With a 3D roof print in clear plastic, Skylight Editions could be a thing.

    You haven't quite perfected the e-bay mentality.
    Here, let me help.
    First, you sell the "Junk" for $111 and THEN, you sell the "Box" for $111.

    Do you ever wonder if there isn't something shady going on with these type of outrageous listings?
    A means by which somebody can launder small amounts of ill gotten gains?
    A means by which an individual can pay for an item legally and up front that is anything but?

    This guy has been on eBay since 1998 with over 39,000 transactions and 6629 current listings. All that and a
    98% positive rating. There are 89 N scale "freight cars"--including this famous Southern Pacific locomotive and other locomotives from Kato and Atlas. Almost all of the listed locomotives are the same price, $1,000.99. Back in grade school in the 1940s, someone who was crazy had "bats in their belfry".

    This seller is located in Belfry, Kentucky,

    They were nice engines for their time and still are. But that price is out of line.
