State Set for Sale

I'm not happy about this but it's reality - I am out of room in my attic and I can't keep two state sets. The cars are Lionel Classics and the 408E is an early MTH.

The engine runs like $&(@*. I think there is something wrong with the E-unit and I don't think it is heavy enough. There are some nicks and scratches on the cars, very minor dents, etc.. Let me know and I can email pictures. The set is in good shape and I have heard that the Lionel name has made the Classics collectible.

No the blog is not turning into a standard gauge "for sale" flea market (although it wouldn't hurt my feelings if I help sell some cool standard gauge stuff). Nah, I just don't feel like listing this on eBay, I'd rather sell it for less money to someone on the blog. As you can tell from my posts, I have dealt with quite a few buyers and sellers on eBay that suck. Sorry, no soft-soaping it, my eBay ID seems to attract obnoxious people that have long ago tossed civility out the window. I have a few horror stories.

So if anyone wants this, let me know, make me an offer. Same rules as eBay applies. As long as it isn't something stupid like 99 cents, I probably won't say no. I ask that you pay shipping and I will take it to the UPS store to get packed up.

Salright? Salright!
