    My wife and I went to Lancaster Pa for the weekend. Saturday morning we went yard sailing as we usually do. The first place we stopped at i found a NEW Bachmann G scale set, Jersey Central passenger train. They wanted $15 for it :eek: . I grabbed it like it was going to run away. My wife was surprised as I don't usually move that fast at yard sales. When we got home I set it up on our deck and run it for a while it has sound & smoke. Fifteen dollars !!!!!! Then my wife asked me how much it could be sold for to get a profit. My reply was it is not for sale.

    Careful there Lester. If she gets a good offer for you, you're history.
