Hi guys, what can I have incoming in transit..
50 Kilos ???


It will take a good week or two before this arrive here.
Should any posters in this tread manage to "guess" what an insane person like myself could think about ordering that weigh 50 kilos, to be handled by a person like me, that has NO back what so ever fit for anything above 4.5 kilos..
I will upon that correct guess, send the person this terrible pocket quartz watch from the bottom sortiment of my most terrible part of my watch collection, free of any charge.


This watch is so bad, the best part of it has to be that as far as I know, it do run the correct way, clockwise. This is the Rolex of terrible watches guys, hang on and take a guess, you might get blody unlucky and win it.

PS: there are a few people in here that if they uses their mind, will know what's in the box I am expecting. I will urge that you do not spill "Lenn's beans" until the competition is over.
Should, none of you guess correctly.. I will be my most devilish and pick one of you that has posted here and ship it to you, free of charge of course.

Think I'd have to call that 51 kg myself .... but I digress.

Could it be a MaxiTrak Case Traction Engine?

Can't remember the shipping weight on mine, but the engine is only 22 lbs and the shipping price would have been in GBP, coming from the UK, this one is in Euro.

Looks like Markie engines are also from England, so the Euro price would cancel them out as well. I'm stumped

Thanks all, it is getting too cryptic I guess.

A clue:

It is not related to any hobby that is generally covered by the forum here, but it is a hobby for many thousand people around the globe. World Championships are held every year. For all i know some of you have the hobby as well. it used to be seen as child's play. . but wasn't toy steam engines also at some point ?
