-------- N-Scale --------
A nice collection of U.S. N-scale items this week! Something for everyone here, and more variety for your layout! Here is a set of three perfect Prussian local-train passenger cars by Fleischmann, in gorgeous dark brown. The spoked wheels are a very nice touch too. They are absolutely gorgeous and in mint condition with no marks or scratches. The only reason I don't rate them as a '10' is because I didn't unseal them from the factory myself. But they're in perfect condition. Enjoy!
-- Flawless condition, really excellent details. Please zoom in on the pictures for a better look.
-- In original boxes

I pack extremely well. You will not be disappointed. I am a perfectionist who understands the laws of physics, and knows just what bad things can happen to a package during handling. I can't guarantee the universe, but I will do my very, very best to pack your item to survive.
Payment can be made via Paypal, or by direct deposit to my bank account in the USA. For international customers without a Paypal account, please contact me for direct payment arrangements to my bank account. I will try my best to work with you, as long as you know that I will not ship until the money arrives to my account.
About my auctions: I'm happy to present gorgeous items in a comfortable, informative, fun auction format. My policies are straightforward:
Whenever possible, I start everything at $1. Don't you get tired of all these auctions where the starting price is in hundreds of dollars? Where's the fun in that? Let's make it a real auction. Unless I'm selling an item on consignment for someone else (which is very rare...) I start everything at $1. Of course this is no reflection on what the item is worth -- I depend on the Ebay process to find the true value of each item. Sure, I might take a hit if no one looks at Ebay that week, but it would be your opportunity to find a bargain! I give you lots of close-up photos. Doesn't it drive you crazy when you're bidding hundreds of dollars on a locomotive, and all you have to go by is a grainy, distant photo? I take close-up pictures without fear or favor, from all angles, including wheels and both sides of everything. Yes, it costs me a few more cents to list and yes, it takes time, but it's what I would expect as a buyer.
I test and inspect everything I sell. What purpose would it serve me if you got something that didn't run, or is damaged? I can't stand it when I buy something that doesn't work; why would I pollute the universe with more of the same? Of course it's possible that I might miss something, so I hope you'll tell me if there's a problem so I can resolve it with you. Also note that when I say something runs "well", I mean "for its category", i.e. an older locomotive might not compare to the latest, but compared...

[caption id="attachment_2501712" align="alignright" width="300" caption="An early Steiff Teddy Bear, circa 1909."][/caption] Nothing is more exciting for a Teddy Bear enthusiast than discovering or owning an early Steiff (button-in-ear) brand cub.
