Help with Product Prices
« on: March 18, 2018, 07:00:07 PM »

I am preparing for the Springfield, IL show next Sunday and have been digging out items to sell.  Looked on eBay and couldn't find anything to get a feel for how I should price these.  I have three Kato Amtrak Material Handling Cars (MHC) and a three unit Deluxe Innovations Amtrak RoadRailer.  Both are lightly used and I probably won't find the boxes.

I turn to RW for your thoughts.

Thanks!
Best regards,

Roger

Here's a sold listing for the road railers, it was the only one I found, but it gives you an idea of what to shoot for.

Helpful hint: use this opportunity to scam Roger.

My exact thought since I'm going to be at that show. :D  :ashat:

Last year I picked-up a near-mint LL CB&Q GP20 for $10 that "didn't run". Cleaned the wheels - perfect! I love HO'ers.  :trollface:

Unfortunately, or fortunately, Roger's Amtrak rolling stock is out of my era.

Pricing also depends on how badly you want to get rid of the stuff.

Thanks for the helpful and "other" replies  :D

C855B please stop by and say hello (and prepare to get scammed) if you make it on Sunday. Here's a link to my photo if you aren't squeamish or currently eating.

Peteski says I look like a sea captain.

Otherwise look for my table which will have N including a few city buildings plus a lot of G that I'm looking to unload.  If I get around to it I want to make a poster advertising my bookshelf (with cherry veneer) Z scale layout with a custom painted Milwaukee Road F unit and Micro-Trains rolling stock.
Best regards,

Roger

Heh heh. Will do. We're taking off for KC tomorrow to pickup our new van, and then to Springfield Saturday to help setup the club's N-Trak layout for the show. See you Sunday!

 :D

Picture yourself in a captain's uniform, pipe in your mouth, behind ship's wheel.   That was the first thing that came to my mind.  :)

I did play a pirate once in a production of Peter Pan and grew my beard out for Fiddler on the roof.

Mike-I hope to come by sometime Saturday afternoon to set up and will look for you.  Just listen for the guy going, "arrrrrrgh!"
Best regards,

Roger
