PC: Re: Wreck of the Penn Central

GATS shows are weird.  I got a Gilbert HO box car at one for $4.  I could
have gotten the one Lionel HO car and probably sold it to another vendor 5
minutes later and made a killing, since he had 70's Lionel HO with some
rediculous prices on it - at the same time it was a GATS show that I got
P2000 GP18's and E8's for $25 and $37 respectively -
