    I can't seem to find the post about it,but a short time back someone posted about an auction on E Bay . It was for a desk decoration made for NBC Broadcasting by Lionel. A bogus looking switcher engine & a chunk of track on a piece of Walnut.
    A the time it had a crazy bid of 5,000 $ --- the stupid thing finally sold for 22,000 $ !!!!!!!!!

    Yep,even if it was original no way I pay that much for it.I could get like nine PCM brass Big Boys with sound for that or 110+ of BLI,Atlas or others with sound!

    There is no way I would pay that for any HO model no matter how collectable.

    You could go live steam for that much.

    The only thing HO that I would pay that much would be unlimited HO models. I wouldn't ever have to spend a penny and would have everything I wanted.bounce7:excited1::goldcup::row1:
