    • Still trying to clear out my garage/workshop before a move.


      I found a stash of 4 vinyl records - I think someone gave them to me after I digitized them for him!  Shipping $ only.


      I have 2 Bachmann speed controllers with the wall wart transformer, and wires, clip, etc.  $5+shipping each.


      A box of Bachmann indoor track - the timplate stuff.  Makes a big oval - 12 curves = 4' diam circle, 20 straights = 2x10' sides.  Great Xmas option. $10 the lot +shipping.

      Perhaps the same as the last 5?

      It was given to my wife, who is clearing out her office and asked if I wanted it before she threw it away.

    • The last leap year was 2012, the next repeat of the days and dates will be 2040."


      So where am I supposed to store it for the next 22 1/2 years?

    • Save it, it's not dead, just has the wrong year on it....


      I googled   ... calendar repeats ....


      "For non-leap years, if we start in 2003 then the repeats are in 2014, 2020,2025 and 2031. The pattern is 11, 6, 5, 6 (starting in 2003). Leap years repeat every 28 years. The last leap year was 2012, the next repeat of the days and dates will be 2040."

    • I have this 2012 UP 150th Anniversary Calendar that I was about to throw away, but the photos are spectacular so I'm offering it for merely the cost of shipping.  (There are 2 or 3 other photos on each page depicting historical stuff, besides the big pic.)

    • OK.  It's going elsewhere for $150 for the lot.

    • Someone asked me if it worked, which seemed a fair question.  So I got it out and fixed the missing wire from the clip to the transformer, loaded the 9V battery.



      Yes, it works.  Here's a very short clip. (The sound works but is distorted due to the age of the battery!)


      I did find a few other missing bits - like the clip for the battery box on the tender.  The smokebox plate was gone, and the whistle on the steam dome.  So I raided my ten-wheeler parts box and found the relevant bits, which you can see on the engine in this post's photo.

    • Boy, that's tempting. But my mom would evict me if I did.

    • I thought I'd give you guys a shot at this before posting it elsewhere.  I got a tip about an estate sale with some 'Backman' trains, so I went along.  Several Big Hauler sets which didn't interest me, but also this "North Star Express" set:



      I had not seen one before, and I got very interested when I saw it was the "Anniversary" 4-6-0 loco.



      Metal valve gear, brass handrails, brass air piping etc.  The coaches have brass end railings too.  It would make a super xmas train, or could be repainted to sensible colors.


      It comes with the track - a big oval with 20 straights (10' long each side, which is generous.)  The controller is there, and some xmas poles with xmas crossbuck signs ("merry christmas", etc.)  I'm sure something is missing - e.g. I can't find the wire to connect the track clip to the controller.  But the box even had a 9V battery for the sound in the tender.  The coaches aren't the latest trucks with wipers (there's a battery box for a 9V for the lights,) but I have some that cost $15 that could be swapped.


      It is new and has never been used - the estate sale lady took it out of the box so it isn't even dusty.  From googling around, these sets were produced for Costco (and maybe Sam's Club) more than 10 years ago, and retailed for about $150.  Apparently these are the only sets that ever got an 'annie' loco.

      As an Anniversary loco will cost around $200 I couldn't resist, and I'm happy to sell it for $145, complete, plus shipping.  (I have a couple of big boxes that will take it in bubble-wrap - if you want the polystyrene box that's another whole ball game!)


      There were also a couple of the neat Aristo Sierra coaches, with the brass cast end rails, etc.  Dusty as if they sat on a shelf, and maybe used once or twice.  I had to grease the backs of the wheels as the wipers were so old before they would roll. 

      That's an 8-wheel caboose (not sure why it's on the xmas passenger run,) I would repaint it and use it separately.



      I cleaned them up and replaced a missing stovepipe chimney. They go quite nicely, so I'll include the pair for another $50.  That's $195 for the lot plus shipping, (and $30 for 2 pairs of trucks with wipers if you want them.)

    • Gary :  the  power block is the big  solid one , not the individual gearboxes.  I never  took it apart so I dont know how many of the axles are powered.  I do know that it is heavy  I dont know how to add a pic here so I sent it to you privately.

    • I am finally decided to stick with one scale in the G scale arena.  I have a couple of Delton C-16's that run but need work as well as a thrid one that I started building as a modern version with ronded domes and stack and headlight.  it also has the Aristocraft motor block in it.  I never got around to finishing off these loco's after I got them.  I even  aquired more parts to build a 4th engine, but again time never allowed me to get it built either.

      As much as I like these little C-16's,  they are too small for the Fn3 or G scale narrow gauge that I have settled into.  


      So I am offereing these up for sale as a package deal.  All three engines with two tenders as well as parts to start building a forth for the low cost of $300.00 plus shipping or trade for a Bachmann Spectrum Caboose or any AMS/Accucraft caboose, gondola or  stock car in any condition as long as its has trucks.

    • I am looking for the ends and roof to a AMS/Accucraft 1:20.3 scale Passenger car.  Don't care what color as long as its in fair condition.  Would also be interested in a semi complete car in good to rough condition. as I need the parts to take measurements from.
