Thought about it ... for a nano-second or two! (My wife would wield her light saber and slash my bidding finger off, though!)

Still at $17 ... that's a really nice loco, at what appears to be a great price.

Hey ... do you guys here voices ... kinda James Earl Jones like ... ?

"Jim ... Buy the 300AC ... you NEED the 300AC ... place a bid, Jim ... place a bid!"

Testy?

I would say, that to describe her as being, "Testy", would be a gross, understatement:( She's approaching, "Nasty", and if she keeps it up, I'm putting all my, "Stuff" away, and will launch, a, "Campaign of Togetherness!":D That will have her opening up the checkbook and the savings acct:laugh::laugh::laugh: After being together 42 years, she's had about as much, "Togetherness", as she's willing to put up with:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

She loves me, but there's just so much she can take, and I tend to smother when I want to change the course/direction of what the current discussion is about. "Yes Dear", "You're Absolutely Right Dear", Anything You Say Sweetness", etc., etc., etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Win or lose, ya gotta suit up for every game!:D

Nice strategy! I tend to lean toward "As long as YOU"RE happy dear---that's all I care about..." accompanied by puppy-dog eyes. *L*

Going ... going ... going ... GONE! At $51 to some lucky (or doomed) S-head!
I saw that! I do believe someone got carried away: I got the metal version with the nickel-wire handrails (less the front to the boiler) for $19.99 about 2 weeks ago. That lil jewel was the plastic version. Very nice, but I don't think that one or mine is worth $51.

I have a theory...aside from the tendency to compete and leave common sense behind, I think sometimes bidders decide to punish their competitor. In other words, "I hate that guy for trying to take this away from me! I'm gonna bid it up as I as I dare and then bail and leave him stuck with it!" In this case, I have to wonder which it was. :laugh:

Hey Jim...have you considered buying her a train? That way, when she asks you why you bought it, you could tell her she needed a hobby and now she can put a little work into getting her caboose in better shape. *L*
