    You must be joking..... Unless that is some sort of absolute rare collectors gold plated piece, no way known would I be paying (currently) $205 US for that. And three days to go, too. Perhaps it's a typo, or computer glich or something. That's more than $300 AUS..... no way, Jose. :eek: :rolleyes: Not on your Nelly... Never in a month of Sundees... I'd bare me bum in Bourke St before I'd pay that much! :p

    Hi Bill,
    Not sure of the value right now but it is still at a good price right now ($268). Go for it if you want it. All of the old space and military trains that Lionel made in the 60's are great collectibles.

    Wow, reading some of those posts in that link really makes me glad I don't hang around the OGR board and never went to that one before! Those guys get flat outright pi**y!! I have no use for people like that! They have no solid proof that anything was other than on the level, but yet they are ready to crucify someone! It sounds to me like these guys are jealous because they don't have/want to spend that kind of money. That's why I spend most my time at mylargescale.com anymore. It's like one big family there, and I got tired of the complaining from O gauge guys. I still like to check in here and see all the excellent work but I honestly don't feel quite as at home(sorry folks).
