I will never, ever buy anything off a Facebook ad. Even if it says Amazon, don't click on the ad, go to Amazon and search it up.

Bowser actually just sent out a notification of another site doing the same thing.  The scam website lists Bowser trains for sale but doesn't have anything, and the Bowser logo they used was actually ripped from a Mario game.

Living the dream and happily modeling my STRATTON AND GILLETTE Railroad in HO scale. The SGRR is a freelanced Class A railroad as it would have appeared on Tuesday, August 3rd, 1954, in my personal fantasy world of plausible nonsense.
