I have a dark blue Athearn Ford C tractor. I'm not sure what the Athearn number is because it's out of the package.

Would you be interested in a trade?

That sounds like the correct one.  What are you looking for in return?

A lot more than the original $10 MSRP of the truck — $35 with very little margin, which is why the building isn't sold through distribution or to the retailers.

LOL, I wonder how much these trucks sell for on evil-Bay....

Bryan, speaking of the White Tower, when will the next version be available?

Evil-bay? What (pray tell) did ebay do to you, Peteski?

I've been selling on ebay for years now and have had mostly good experiences.

I looked and only found one N-scale Athearn Ford C tractor. It wasn't blue.

Bryan, I wasn't looking for a straight-across trade here, I just figured we might both benefit from this deal.

How about I send you $20 and I pay for the shipping both ways?

Jimmo — what color is your tractor?  If it is a dark color, I can still use it.  Yellow or white is less useful because of the plastic color.

Bryan, speaking of the White Tower, when will the next version be available?

Whenever they come back from casting.  The packaging is set and waiting.  They will go on sale as soon as they arrive.

Oh nothing specific. I've been (mostly) buying and selling since 1999, so I've seen few changes (many not for the better).  I even bought few of your wonderful models there.  :)

Many people use that moniker to describe eBay.  Why? For me it is because it is a place which often sucks money out of my Paypal account (by choice), and because it has become a giant wasteland of crappy or overpriced items ( both auction and non-acution), beeing re-listed seemingly forever, with unscrupulous sellers looking for suckers.  :facepalm:

Bryan: thanks for the update. I'll be into at least one of those when they become available.

Dark blue. As far as I can recall, it's the only blue they came in.

Bryan,  I have one in dark blue, but the driver's mirror is missing...

It's yours if you want it...

That sounds good.  I'll can do the WT trade, as I have some of the buildings on hand from the last batch I ordered.

Lou, that would be fine.  How much as you asking for it?
