Aha, that's very clever ! I mean, you spent a fortune, but you saved a fortune. So if I get it right doing the math 101, you must break totally even, and you are even left with a collection of Big Boys for free ! Awesome ! Did you know that when my comrade AHM, former Yugoslavia, produced them, like 30 - 40 years ago they used to sell for $ 50 - 65 new, in Europe $ 30 - 40 ? I don't understand why nowadays they are so overpriced, too expensive. First I didn't see any thrill in collecting 30 locos of the same type except that "bizarre overshooting by 5 the record of 25", I do know the maddening thrill of a few hundreds of a different type each, but looking at the Big Boy size over and over again, I start to need it, only one, though. So now it's on my wish list. :SELLIT: One to me, and you still win by 29 !
