      Wanted/Sale Bachmann Li'L Hauler Combine

      I'm making a short train of coaches, and came across the Li'l Big Hauler combine.  I already got a baggage car for $24 [$19.99 at Trainworld, but shipping = ++].  There don't seem to be many of these around - couldn't find one sold on its own - just in the sets.

       

      But I did find a set on eBay (by someone selling off Gold Coast Station?) for a mere $85 plus $38 shipping.

      https://www.ebay.com/itm/BACH-90197-LIL-BIG-HAULER-BUMBLE-BEE-PASSENGER-SET-NEW-IN-SHIPPING-BOX-/112623080349?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10

      If anyone is interested, I'd like to buy the combine from them!!

      I dunno about that.  They usually runn about $150-200.  $38 for shipping isn't bad for a big box like that.

      The sets are usually $150-200.  The baggage on its own (not the same as the combine in the sets) is about $25.  I found one for $24+ on Amazon, and by combining it with another purchase managed to get free shipping.

       

      The same seller sold that one and put another on eBay for $99+$37.50 shipping.

      The basic problem is that the Combine ONLY came with the passenger train set, like the boxcar and gondola in the freight set, they've never been offered individually in boxes like the other cars. Al Kramer sometimes sells the sets for cheap (engine, tender, passenger cars only minus the track and powerpack). I got a couple of those sets for about $70 each. Check with Al, he's listed as ana.kramer on eBay, he might still have a stripped set or loose car lurking about he can sell you.

      Good idea - I'll check with Al.

      Shouldn't be too difficult to scratchbuild one out of a baggage car and coach

      Agree, but that won't make it cheap!

      Odd that the combines aren't sold separately.

      Considering that set, aside from shipping costs, that's $50 for engine/tender and $25 per car, plus a powerpack, you can sell the tin track and even the powerpack for a few dollars, cutting the overall cost by a few bucks, just saying.

      Wow! Hope you get your teeth back for Christmas Dinner!

      Brrrumpbump!

       

      But seriously, I do have a combine that was to be a project. Will let you have it for what I paid-$25 plus shipping. That way I can tell my wife I am selling stuff and thinning out.
