Holy cow, that is just amazing! Where on earth do you find all of these great deals; share or ban :p
Connections man, connections.:rolleyes::D I've got yard salers that cruise the country for me and give me a ring whenever they come across deals like this. These were found in a barn hayloft in Maryland and were free for the asking. Some nice pieces include a Black & Decker box car, a Campbell's Soup caboose and a Tyco auto rack with the hard to find Camaro load.

Hmm, let see .. :D

Some vintage Marklin stuff, a couple sets and a some track and switches, since I was contemplating building a small analog layout.

Also scored some pieces missing from my LGB collection including a 2046 Furka Oberalp rack loco (been looking for one of these for quite a while now), a 3070 Deutsche Bundesbahn coach to replace the one I got a while ago from eBay that had a mouse living in it at some point and wrecked it, as well as a 3163 Zillertalbahn coach to complement the 3164 I have.

I'll post some pics soon!

Sniping well there's pros and cons. For one they drive up the price. you can prevent it. I keep a high ceiling on a wanted item. The last second guy never bids enough. One item i saved by 18 cents.If an item is underpriced I bid with a few minutes left to feel out the ceiling. I sometimes bid on no bid items and let it ride. Those tend to get sniped but I won't pay more. Trains are never scarce on ebay. Too bad you don't know the bidders that tells you a lot. The low number guys always overbid. I tend to shy away from those. Because of the large number of items they do peak close to the end anyway. Congrats on the item!
