Some people are just plain uniformed, or are scammers. I see this in the LGB part of eBay every now and then.

I used to help people out and gently let them know their expectations are far too high, but I don't have that much time on my hands anymore!
I would, but I do not know how to keep my mouth shut... Most likely I would end up saying something rude and demeaning :eek:

At train shows I am aproached by people with basic Bachmann sets that are 30-35 years old who want them appraised. It is a rare bird who believes me when I tel them how much they are worth, thinking they have the lost treasure of King Solomon. I now tell them in a diplomatic way that the market is very fluid and to research it on Ebay. The Lionel Boom of the 80s has not really let go yet.
