Holy Haggis! Either someone missed a decimal point, or they do not know what things are worth.

Remember eBay is about the only place where you will find someone selling a slice of toast for $1000, just because the scorchonly mark faintly resembles Elvis.

I saw a bad example of someone pricing themselves out of a sale:

Following up on a lead from the local hobby shop, we went to a flea market to look at some supposed TT stuff for sale. There was some TT stuff, a pair of Lionel TT scale steam engines, a N&W J-Class and a NYC Hudson, as well as some HP track parts.

The young woman running the booth wanted $200 for the track parts and $400 each for the locomotives. I asked her if she had a decimal point in the wrong spot, and told her how much we paid for our copies of each loco. She claimed that her locos were better than ours.

Nicholle asked her if they ran or not. The small minded gal replied that they did. She was not happy when we told her that all of that series were dummies. She wanted to argue that point with us, so we just walked away.

Regarding the track parts: there were some ripple ramps, questionable condition grooved roadbed, and a HP box with rail segments in it.

Not worth $200, or even $20.
