I was recently searching Facebook Marketplace lookout for deals on used model trains and rolling stock which is something I do every once in a while just see if anything good is being sold locally.
I wasn’t finding much so I was finishing up my search when I stubled across a mega lot of 24 used locomotives for $245 USD. I could see there were a few pretty decent engines and a bunch cheaper ones.
You can’t always be sure what you’re buying is what’s being advertised (condition, authenticity) and the photos didn’t make it clear so I wasn’t entirely sure what I was buying.
I wouldn’t usually purchase items on marketplace though shipping since there isn’t much you can do if the seller decides not to ship them however in this case I was lucky and they followed through.
