The Steam Locomotive Operations Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring a White Elephant Table at the NELSTS on April 28-29, 2023.
The Amherst Railway Society, the sponsor of the show, defines “Large Scale” as any of the following: S-scale, O-scale, G-scale, F-scale, 7.25 gauge, 7.5 gauge (1.5" to the foot) and larger. The purpose of the White Elephant Table at the show is to allow attendees to sell any “Large Scale” items they wish to sell.
The Steam Locomotive Operations Group, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) established to issue grants to organizations which provide Hands-on-the-Throttle training to volunteer/apprentice engineers and firemen.
Sellers will be asked to donate $1 for each 5 items they wish to sell to help cover our costs. On completion of sales the seller will donate 10% of the sale as a commission to the Steam Locomotive Operations Group, Inc.
If the seller desires to accept credit cards for their sales an additional 2% of the sale will be charged to cover credit card processing fees.
Volunteers willing to spend 4 or more hours at the show helping out at the booth (arranged in advance) will not have to pay any commission for sales made but are asked to make a small donation based on the sales they made after the event.
Since this is classified as a casual sale by a non-profit, no sales tax will be collected for sales made during the show.
