Be on the lookout for a bald tall guy trying to sell an Auscision Patrick 73 class. He lifted it from our shop late this arvo. Makes us sick.... — feeling angry.
I noticed there's a Patrick 73 on eBay at the moment. Could be the one you are looking for.....I looked at that one on ebay and it is advertised as being heat damaged (on top of the hood above the circuit board).
He specifically says "no pick-up available" too, which possibly adds further suspicion.Get off the grass, most eBay sellers with a small level of commonsense don't allow for pickup. It's not because we're fencing stolen locos, it's because we don't want our own properties done over...

SHEEEESSHHH!!!!!

Barnes are aware of the ebay 73. Hopefully the seller of it can clarify its ownership. If you want to follow the conversation go to Facebook and search for Barnes Hobbies and Cycles. They also have a website http://www.barneshobbies.com.au/ so if you have any information, you can get their contact details. The only good part of this is 99% of people are disgusted by this dishonesty.
I wouldn't have thought that the owner of the ebay 73 has to do anything to clarify his ownership unless the one stolen from Barnes had the same heat distortion.I checked the FB page. There's some geniuses about 'it looks brand new. even the box looks new' - then from the shop 'yes so was ours!!!' Well hmmm, let's just think about that why would the shop be selling a heat damaged unit? These locos have been on the market for less than 10 months, most of them would look brand new, except that one's not, it's damaged, as for the box, I have perfect boxes for all my gear, most of it is much older than 10 months... No receipt? I have a Walker, mailed out to me in the last couple of months - do I know where the receipt is? Nup.
