Reply to "What to you guys pay for O gauge connecting pins if you buy them in a train shop?"

Rich,

You've got me laughing. Many years ago, my hobby was collecting original antique first model Winchester 1873s, in 44-40.  I thought nothing of plunking down $10,000 for a specimen in all original VG condition.   (They go for $15,000 to $25,000 now. A mint condition 73,  if you can find one, would go for $50,000.)

But no, I ain't putting more than $300 or $400 into an old school train layout, engines and cars included.

So no, I ain't paying $1.00 per pin.   :-)

Collecting true antique firearms is definitely a profit deal.   Playing with the trains is definitely not.  Its a luxury.
