eBay Four Great Divisions isn't book about mathematics.  It's a book about railroads -- the New York Central; the Erie-Lackawanna; and the Northern Pacific.The four great divisions are:*  The New York Central's Hudson Division from Grand Central Station to Schenectady, NY.*  The Erie-Lackawanna's New York Division from Hoboken, NJ, to Port Jervis, NY, and to Montclair and Gladstone, NJ, on the Morris & Essex line.*  The Erie-Lackawanna's Scranton Division to Scranton, PA, and Binghamton, NY.*  The Northern Pacific-Burlington Northern's Rocky Mountain Division through Montana including Bozeman Pass and Homestake Pass.These divisions are the personal favorites of the book's author, John Henderson, a former operator on the Erie-Lackawanna, and author of railroad books.  He also took most of the photos, many of them quite dramatic.  No steam, but lots of first generation diesels, heavy electrics and electric MU cars.  Also Hudson River ferries, station exteriors and interiors, and streamliner car interiors.  Narrative is personal reflections of the author from personal fan trips and days on the job.  Includes many operating insights.  Extended, detailed photo captions.The book is soft-covered in an 11 x 8-1/2 horizontal page format.  It has 112 pages, more than 180 color photographs, route maps, interlocking diagrams, timetables, and more.  It was published by H&M Productions.  No date given for publication but I would guess it was printed between 1990 and 2010.The book's condition is like-new.  No folds, creases or wrinkles.  No writing, underlining highlighting or marks of any kind.  No stains.  No loose or missing pages.  Binding is tight.  No dog eared corners, and no odors.  Pretty much just the way it came off the printing press.Fans of these railroads, and even those who aren't regular ardmirers, will enjoy this book.  The quality of the photographs and their printing is excellent.  The  color is sumptuous.  The photos' content is immensely satisfying and their variety is wide-ranging.  I think you'll find this book very rewarding.  It would make a great gift this holiday season for that rail fan on your list that's sure to be appreciated.  Or buy it for yourself for a very enjoyable read and feast for the eyes.HOW TO BEAT SNIPERS.  If you're as fed up as I am with snipers beating you out time after time at the last minute for an item you want, then "MAKE AN OFFER" IS YOUR BETTER BET.  No snipers.  No one topping your bid.  It's really your best chance for getting what you want at the price you want.  I do it all the time and I'm frequently surprised how successful I am bidding that way.  You should try it.  Frankly, I'm surprised more eBayers don't.  I've switched a lot of the items I'm selling to "BUY IT NOW" with the "MAKE AN OFFER" option and I'm dismayed at how few offers I get.  The fact that a seller offers the "Buy it Now" option should say to you that he's willing to accept  something less than his "Buy It Now" price.  How much less?  Well, probably not a great deal less, like 50 percent.  That's just unrealistic. But 10 percent is a more likely amount and sometimes it's more!  Don't be put off if the seller comes back to you with a counter offer.  That's horse tradin'.  And that's fun too. Why don't you GIVE IT A TRY.A word or two about PAYMENT.  EBay requires you use PayPal, but other methods of payment may be accepted by me.  Email me to discuss it if you don't use PayPal.  I don't want you to not be able to bid just because you don't use PayPal.   FREE LOCAL PICK UP in the Philadelphia, PA, area.  FREE DELIVERY in the Glenside PA, area. SHIPPING.  I don't charge you for my time spent packing or the packing materials used, or for running to the post office, or any of the other charges some other sellers tack on.  No high shipping and extra handling charges here.  I reuse clean boxes, envelopes and packing materials to save YOU money.  The shipping I charge is what the shipping actually costs the least expensive way I can find.  I don't use expensive packing and delivery services as some sellers insist on for their convenience, not yours.  You tell me how you want your item shipped and that's how it goes.  You pay what it costs and that's it.I try to accurately estimate the shipping costs on my auction page and in my invoice but, if the actual shipping cost turns out to be less than what you've paid, I will refund the excess.  On the other hand, if the actual cost is more, which happens occasionally, I will expect you to pay the additional.  That's only fair, no?COMBINING PURCHASES.  If you buy more than one item at a time from me, I will be happy to combine them into one package to save you on shipping.INSURANCE.  The post office is now including insurance up to $50 free with all Priority Mail packages.  Insurance for more than $50 is at additional cost.  I require insurance on all Parcel Select packages with a value of more than $10.  Items selling for less than $10 usually are shipped with no insurance but do include a charge, if not shipped Priority Mail, of $1.10 cents for tracking so I know when and that you have received your item.  Sadly, few eBay buyers have the courtesy to email to say their item arrived.  I had a few jokers tell me their items never arrived.  So, long ago I started to require at least tracking on every shipment and that put a fast end to that little scam.  I haven't had one claim of nondelivery since.  Sad commentary on some folks, isn't that?EBay also has extended its FEES so that it now imposes its fee not only on the final sale price of an item, which it certainly is entitled to and is fair, but also on the cost of the shipping, which it isn't entitled to and isn't fair.  That's a BIG bite, especially on international sales, and, as a result, many sellers have raised their handling fees to cover this additional and unfair expense, passing it on to you, the buyer, hidden in a higher shipping and handling cost.  If you too think this is unfair, tell eBay.  Sorry, no RETURNS accepted and no refunds given.  I don't see the need.  I inspect every item I sell to make sure all its parts are there, in good condition and working.   I describe my items thoroughly,  accurately and honestly -- more so than many eBay sellers do, I'm sad to say.  I don't hide or hold back on mentioning any of an item's flaws.  The only way buying by long distance, sight-unseen works is by sellers being honest, ethical and describing their items accurately, truthfully and completely,  even if it's to their detriment.  Photos, I've found, often hide as much as they show, so I describe fully.  I'm a modeler, not a dealer, selling my items to raise cash for new hobby purchases and to make room for them, and to get rid of items that now are surplus to me.  I don't want to see them back.  I am not selling on approval like a stamp dealer, so all sales are final.
