Parts of a train engine (for rail fan) = Bid, starts from 1000 yen ($10.31 €7.87)

There was a fair at Tokyo Freight Terminal (railway cargo terminal). The terminal is located in my neighbor area, so my son and I went to the fair. There was no charge to enter that fair. As usual there were lots of guests, it was hard to see exhibited objects closely. 

Out-of-duty parts of train locomotives were sold at a corner. It was an auction and rail fans took bids. A cheap component is a car-number plate, and its bid started from 1000 yen ($10.31 €7.87). An expensive one is a locomotive's ID plate. The bid started from 280,000 yen ($2,886.60 €2,204.72). 



I bought a bottle of orange juice for my son. It cost 100 yen.
