Long story short - my younger brother borrowed my car while I was working abroad (UK) and let's just say with him as a student, the car got neglected.
I just returned home, on my way to the USA, and found that I needed the car fixed to be mobile. My mechanic works from his home and he had a rubber-duck boat in his garage when I accidentally slipped and pull a sheet off the boat. Inside the boat was an Kibri N scale layout (similar to the modern Noch preformed plastic layouts).
At the time I just lost out on a big collection of OO in the UK and I was interested.
Turns out the N scale stuff it was for sale. At the same moment his doorbell rung and he said it must be the guy coming to look at the collection. Told him on the spot I'll take it, offered a little more than he wanted and the deal was done.
When he came back from the door he commented "Phew, that guy was pissed!"
I should have looked who it was... might be a current mate...
