Some of you may recall the post from Greg Brown about an auction of an estate. Most people gave up when they heard of the 25% buyers premium, but I persevered and no-one else wanted to bid on the lot I wanted. So this week the box finally arrived.
Inside were several LGB freights, and a bunch of weird stuff that the prior owner had modified or made.
I am planning to sell the freights, as they are in good condition, almost unused, and I thought I’d let you guys in first. If there is anything of interest, send me a message and we’ll work something out.
P.S. Not shown on the table are the 2 items I wanted. A tram/inspection locomotive with a trailer, and a long depressed center wagon with a boatload (!) of issues.
I’m also anticipating spending some time fixing things. The modified Stainz (bottom right) and the snow plow with cabin (top right, 2nd row) both have LGB power blocks, but both free-wheel as if someone removed the motor or gears. I’ll post details as I go.
