I am a sucker for those Spirit of '76 things. I only have a couple but.....
Counting Locos, rolling stock and passenger cars I probably have over 100 pcs of Tyco S of 76. Not only did I step on the slippery slop, I slid all the way down, and I'm still sliding. That's my biggest problem, I get one piece of a set and I think I need the whole set and more. For example the Life-Like Campbells train set. I had rolling stock from the flat I got at an auction and found two locomotives and the rest of the rolling stock on E-bay. The one car I could not get was the Franco American car without paying thru the nose. After about six months of looking I found one at a respectable price . Now I have two sets of the Campbells train set. I did the same thing for the Corkey's Circus train. Once I'm hooked there's no turning back.

umpdan31: JadeFog: i found a brand new in the box ConCor PRR mail car. Although the ones that I already have are all heavyweights with 6 wheel trucks, this one is a lightweight with 4 wheel trucks. I also picked up a few assorted couplers. Glad he was open again.

umpdan31: The mail car was 10 bucks. Not bad for a brand new car.
