Found a box with a bunch of railroad keys and locks in it I got around $1500 for.  About 35 keys with letters stamped into them like D & RG RR meaning Denver and Rio Grande railroad.  Guess people collect different railroad keys like others would collect stamps and coins.  Found out the hard way listing those on ebay as I was banned for a little more than a month for it.  Against there TOU.

Why is it against the TOU?

It was against the TOU because so many railroads were calling and telling ebay to cancel them as if you have a key for a specific railroad that key works for all there rail cars I was told.  I had people from Union Pacific messaging me to send them back the keys with there Initials on them (UPRR), and all I could say was start bidding.  I had them on ebay for 2 days before they took them off, but I ended up using a buy it now on each one during the weekend and they all sold before ebay could take the auctions down and before you know it I was no longer a registered user.
