Something to look out for if you go to the York Train show! They've got to unload that stuff somewhere.

Or maybe on e bay?

Maybe they are going to build a big layout?

I guess there is no way to tell if your buying one of them?

Probably not. But you know what they say; "If the deal is too good to be true, it's probably stolen!"

Well, I am always looking for a deal to "steal".
I guess someone is going to end up with them?

Time to call in the Pinkertons!

Hate to say it , but if I were going to rob a store with a metal gate it wouldn't be a train store as the merchandise would be easier to track. Eaither stupid crooks or an inside job. Much easier to sell electronics, etc.

Talk about desperate... I wonder if they're on the forum right now? If they are, let's guilt trip them
