Further to my thread the other day -
When you make an initial bid Ebay asks what your maximum bid limit is. Your initial bid, if the first, will match the seller's opening offer. As more bidders arrive and increase the value of the bids Ebay's automated system will raise your bid to outbid them till your limit is eventually met (or not).I never had bid on ebay.
I do not understand the 2 bidders : a) O***O and b) q****1
They raised the price by themselves step by step from 25 up to 96 £ for O***O
Is there a known explanation ?
Wot, with professionally (??) installed battery leads draped over the backHow about this one?
I BROUGHT IT WITH 12V DC LINE PICKUP - BUT HAVE SINCE CONVERTED IT TO RUN ON 12V BATTERY. ALL CONNECTIONS ARE STRAIGHT FORWARD AND EASY TO FOLLOW -.www.ebay.co.uk
I am not sure about this, value-wise? - Personally
I was being a tad sarky about the battery wiring, but if the loco was professionally built, who would want to spoil it with wiring like thatIt does say the engine was professionally built, but he fitted the battery. With wiring like that, what's hidden under the tarp?
It did look like poor value for what it went at. But you never know. A Battery Vehicle is never going to be as good as a Loco that has all the gubbins on board, trickier to do but possible with a little care on most G Scale Locomotives. However if you just want to watch Trains Running round you line then a Battery Vehicle is ok, horses for courses I guess.I find it annoying when sellers take pictures of a model from the top only and none at virtual eye level.
Like taking a picture of a little dog from above. Clueless!
The LGB 'Rusty' got a high price for what it is. Made in Korea. The plastic is not quite as good (don't over tighten the cover plate). The plated details are metal instead of plastic. 'Casey' which looks the same is a better quality model made in Germany.
