I find it disappointing to see this seller dismantling Tyco cars to sell them by the parts. His auctions are loads, wheel trucks, horn hooks and stripped car bodies. I'm one that finds my self trying to add to my Tyco cars instead of tearing them down. That's just my opinion though, I may be wrong... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-12-Vintage-HO-Tyco-Culverts-Flatcar-Load-ZA48/203294540812?hash=item2f554c840c:g:svkAAOSwtsRgPv7t

well I read in a Ad on Yahoo that model trains aren't a top seller like they used to be
but I blame that on the new tech we has
Like cell phones & video games
cause kids just aren't into model trains like they used to be from the 50s to the 2000s

here is an odd item
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-HO-Scale-Tyco-Golden-Eagle-Diesel-Engine-Damaged-AS-IS/324565257879?
I thought that maybe it was a prototype at first but it wouldn't make sense for tyco to use an athearn locomotive when they already had the alco c630 model which they had been making for a few years.
it is still an interesting custom model though

Yes, I saw this also, and I have no idea how exactly they made those decals? look just like the Golden Eagle, especially with the Eagle logo on the nose. My guess is someone made their own decals or something, for this project.

LOL, I doubt he'll accept, but I would pay for shipping. From time to time
I've discoursed with these odd ducks, and they really believe that they're
price is accurate and they are holding a gold mine.

That's a point, it does have collector value. But at 20K I'll just have
to live without. I've owned various pieces of the sets at various times,
the quality is well, Tyco. Nothing I'm going to set myself on fire for.

I see now he has a lot of 60. That's $333.33 each. If I was just mad about having one, I'd do maybe $175, max.

Hey, I posted some stuff up on eBay at uninsane prices. Priced to sell, well below market ask. MRC Command Control and a few other European bits.
