I will take at least 30 of those Dai-Ichi switches. It's one of the three types in my rogues gallery
. The other two are CL-1145 White (I still want some of those) and what I thought was a cheap Futaba clone but is actually a genuine Omron switch that I may obtain from Ail as the price I was given on AliExpress was stupid.
I'll have one or two CL-1145 Green if they are NOS. I don't need used ones as I have those already.

You need to post photos and prices of them all so that we can see what you have, and whether they are used or NOS.
For example, I want one of these off you:
I think this is the Cherry MX mount version of Datanetics DC-60 series

While reading around on Wikipedia, I came across a photo of Sheung Shui Station
, and I spotted something very curious in the background, only just visible. Having rummaged around for photos of Hong Kong (and it looks nothing like I imagined) I could see that I was correct: by virtue of its origin as the KCR British Section, the East Rail Line uses a specific design of OHLE (railway catenary: the overhead lines that supply power to trains) that I that I thought was unique to Britain. The Sheung Shui Station photo shows a unusual headspan/anchor span arrangement, but parts of the line really are just bog standard British headspan. Headspan (wires strung between the masts to support the overhead lines) is pretty rare in itself, but Germany, Austria and Switzerland use it in stations for some reason; their version is far simpler than the design we use here. It's used extensively in Britain but I think it's considered obsolete, maybe due the pain of registering it.
Your tremendously, excruciatingly boring fact for the day. Or a lifetime, I fear.
