The One That Got Away....
I was watching the Ralston auction today. Most of it was very, very reasonable, especially if you like Marklin or some other German manufacturer.
I wish they broke the auction up logically, like The New England Toy Train Exchange does. Everything seems to be all over the place. I really like the German stuff but I would rather tune into the auction when items I am interested in are getting auctioned off. All in all though, the auctions were not expensive at all. I am still confused on the Lionel Classics stuff, they auctioned off two 390E's in Blue and Green that they claimed were Lionel Classics. I just know that this can't be correct.
The above (pictured) got away. I was about to bid and my internet connection died. I practically threw the computer at the wall.
The price of 260 bucks is pretty reasonable for this set. I only have one CMT engine and it doesn't run well at all. I thought I would try this one. I liked this Camelback because I haven't seen many in standard gauge.
Does anyone have any information on CMT or some of the other obscure vendors like JAD?
Oh well, another day, another train....
