Yes that is a starting bid! However, I have just never known those Tyco pieces, and I have been around them for many years.

The State box cars by Tyco. I only have the one, Ohio piece. Never found the need to try to round up all of the states. No real interest in doing that.

Actually, if you look at it, most of the wheels are flangeless, so it might actually just be crazy enough to work on normal curves.

Oh yeah! I just noticed that! Can you believe the price is actually going up? People probably want it just for the sheer stupidity of it. maeby I should get some junk locos and do a crazy kitbash. Maybe I could make a few bucks!

I mean, who wouldn't want something crazy like that? I know I have some bizarre pieces in my collection for the same reason people want this guy; just because of how strange it is.

I'm a fan of the Amtrak pieces but I believe this price may be a bit too much. I am always Leary of spending a lot of money on a Tyco engine because you never know if the run unless the seller has tested it.
