Just saw a brass K4 for sale on Ebay for buy it now price $300 and it does not look nearly as good as Bachmann's. Does the price of brass engines go down with new release of better running and looking plastic engine?

I'd sure hope so - those Precision Scale K4's are absolute garbage. Personally, I wouldn't pay ten cents for one, although I suppose they will always hold at least some appeal for brass collectors.

Cheers,

As a buddy of mine who works at a respectable Brass Dealer will tell you, the brass market is tumbling down. He used to collect a ton of N scale brass and he will be the first to tell you N-scale and O scale brass is seeing it's last days and soon HO will follow.  In a few years after enough circulation of K4's go around those engines will only be worth something if they have an alternative look, like the streamlined versions or the skyline casing versions unless Bachmann were to go a step further and offer alternative versions.
