I was watching that and thinking the same. Almost pulled the trigger... Glad it's going to a good home!

I was surprised there wasn't more action. Wasn't cheap, but far less than some have gone for.

Yes, it was a more than reasonable price in such great condition. I think the guy said it went for almost twice that much when it was new. I have just depleted my train funds lately. I'm sitting on a bunch of stuff I need to sell, but I'm waiting for the Summer doldrums of the train market to end.

George

The market must just be down, or what I thought was a good deal isn't that great anymore lol, There are some nicer cars on right now too for 3 times as much with a few days left...  I think I've seen loose roofs lately, of course, now that I want one probably won't be as easy!

M2 Machines...available at you local Wally World. I've got several cars made by them. "50s to '60s stuff. Nice detail, about $5 or a little less for a car. You can see a couple parked by the Church and Post Office.

I think Hennings might even have them for those cars. They should look nice when redone.

Here's an item for you guys to buy... In Stout's auction next weekend in Indiana, there is a Lionel Tuscan 813 rubber stamped lettering with the original box! I read that there are only 12 of these in existence. Although, I happened to see 4 of them on eBay one year.

Go get it guys! This one could go for over $2,000! I won't be bidding sadly.

George

P.S. Remember that if you buy online and pay with a credit card, your buyer's fee will be $400 if the car sells for $2,000. 

That's terrible! You'd think for $45 in shipping the seller would have packed it better. I thought the legs would be the hardest to protect, but there's no excuse for the base. The damage under the roof is odd, since the roof seems fine itself. 

So sorry Steve.

George

If you decide to keep it, You can probably straighten the tin on the cab with pliers. Tape the area with electrical tape to protect the paint and gently bend. Not sure about the legs. You can glue the base with JB Weld, but you will see the crack and touch up paint.

And the answer is no. Very poorly packed.

Steve,

So sorry to hear. My guess he did not wrap and pack due to higher shipping costs. I would open a case with PayPal. They will make sure he sends you a call tag for a full refund.

  That's sad.

   Two weeks ago I saw a FedEx joker throwing boxes on a hand cart with his hand guiding and slamming them home from above; like they were basketballs being dribbled. 

  And this was after he used his truck's shadow, motor revs, and tailgating, to intimidate all the old ladies out of the circle drive so he could park at the foot of the handicap ramp to the main entrance at the medical center. He was there for twenty minutes, making folks that couldn't hobble down have to wait on him.  

  Had my big mouth not been to the dentist, I sure would have loved using it that day.  The whole time I was thinking of the last Dorfan copy I saw damaged in shipping here.  People really suck sometimes

The guy had 0 feedback score so is new to Ebay.

He charged $45.00  shipping, his actual cost was $66.00. He said he paid extra for special handling. Fragile stickers all over the box.

I got it at a really good price so I will keep it and repair. It works, just won't be quite as pristine.

He has filed a claim with the USPS.

He is offering a $100.00 refund. Hopefully he does it.

The box has some minor damage, not too bad so it was not abused excessivly. The box was literally the same length as the crane so the base and roof were wedged against the box ends. He did wrap it well, but with the tight fit in the box, it was a disaster waiting to happen.

I want to Linal train said I need a want to have a little he just threw the trains in a box with some scraps of Styrofoam in their answer is just file a claim.

Serious junk.. 19 inch long  1928 Bing No1 gauge Pullmans.  Two of them, one missing it's top.  I think the numbers are 10/529 or 10/530...  Do I have any other 1 gauge stuff??? ..... No.... not yet....

Not sure how tough these cars are to find, but I've only seen them in auction pictures and such.  I will restore these.

Hi Dennis.

Based on this catalog page and my rusty German, what you have is the 10/538/1 - the Speisewagen (trip or tour coach).  The 10/539/X is the Schlaffwagen (Sleeping coach).  Based on your length of 19" I assign the /1 designation because the /0 is 13.75" long.  I converted the metric descriptions in the catalog.

Nice find.  Have fun cleaning them up and restoring them.  I'm betting with your skills you can cut/stamp/replicate your own roof based on a template from the one you have.

Good luck with that locomotive <smile>.

U the man Dennis!  Keep us posted on the search for the engine!  Not nearly as rare but still a nice rescue from the rust bucket/bin of used stuff- had to paint the bases of the telegraph poles but the rest cleaned up pretty good. Probably paid too much at $20 but got some parts along with.

If it was easy, anybody could do it!

Now if I can only find the correct Bing engine.... and afford it.

Dennis take a look on eBay in Germany, there is some Bing gauge one, but be carefull the pieces offered are sometime not so good..... the best ones are for sale in large auction houses.

And after Bing there is Marklin..... gauge one is great but may be very expensive. Some nice sets are affordables as this one from Marklin in 1928-29.

Thanks guys!  I know they are in junk condition, but I'm excited, I think in good condition, these are way above my pay grade! I managed to find them on ebay and those are the auction pictures,,,, made an offer of $50 and he took it.  They had actually been listed several times, and I just finally said go for it since I knew what they were. 

John, I love those signs! 

Daniel, That Marklin is great as well.  I think I just saw a similar passenger car here on US ebay, will have to take another look.

Thanks Byrdie, I'll do my best.... my project mountain is still growing!!

George, You never know, might get up there some time!
