I have some old railroad items that my husband and I have been trying to sell…but found out that ebay, in their oh so infinite wisdom, has decided that old vintage railroad locks and keys are a threat to our Homeland Security.
However, we don’t allow listings for most government, transit, and shipping-related items because of strict federal regulations and to help ensure the safety of passengers. Examples of prohibited items include:
— Keys (including switch keys or switch lock keys), tools, or anything–regardless of how old it is–that can control transit vehicles like subways and trains.
So, I’ve decided to list them on my etsy site ~ we are raising money for my husband to take an OSHA class in hopes of helping him land a job. It seems a few good jobs in town want you to have an OSHA 10 Card (construction safety) before they hire you. The state of Nevada (unemployment) will not pay for this class UNLESS the company promises to hire you at a Full-Time Permanent position…BUT…the company will not hire you unless you have the OSHA 10 Card. Catch-22.
