You may want to inquire with him if he will send you SFRD stock car photos on speculation meaning you return what you do not want. I know in the past he has done this.

The front tank appears as though it shifted in transit.  The blocking on the left track has been pushed forward and the inbound diagonal strut has collapsed.

Subject: [STMFC] paint booth





I built my last booth out of 3/4 plywood and a squirrel cage fan I got from Granger.

I built a small channel or bracket(For lack of a better term) over the fan outlet for an A/C filter.

I had to vacuum the filter about every ten uses of so to remove dry paint particles.

While it worked well, I made one modification. I added a piece of plywood on top of the open front to make the opening smaller.

I got a lot of paint fumes escaping out the top and this extension kept them in.

When I moved I trashed the booth but kept the motor.

When I rebuild I plan one additional modification, lights in the booth.



Otherwise I found this booth to be quite functional.

What would make it more likely to be a hold track than an RIP track?  After all, teh RIP stores seem to be located immediately adjacent to the track in question...

Re: ebay help

Fran Giacoma
 

Clark, 
In addition to what Tim and others said, add the scale and the car length (eg 40’, HO, etc.). I narrow my searches for boxcars by putting “40” in the search field to eliminate the 50’ or 36’ ones.
For refrigerated cars, add the word “Reefer” to the title or description. I have had good luck on searches with that word rather than “refrigerator car”.

Hi Clark,
 
I have sold some model railroad related stuff on eBay, including some STEAM ERA FREIGHT CARS. But certainly I am not the begin-all end-all expert on the topic.
 
I assume you have purchased items on eBay? If so, look at the items you have purchased for yourself and ask yourself these questions...
 
* What did the seller of this item do to make it locatable in an eBay search?
 
* What did the seller do to make for a good, detailed presentation of the article at hand?
 
* What did I do to find it?
 
In essence, learn by tapping in to what strikes you as being good examples, and then use those same techniques for yourself in your listings.
 
In any case, I wish you good luck on your sales.

Re: ebay help

Todd Sullivan
 

Hi Clark,

My early eBay tutor told me to take clear photos (you can put as many as 7-9 in an eBay listing now) and write up every feature of the item you are selling in the description.  eBay keeps changing their categories, but if you write a title that has the essential information, eBay's category picker software will usually provide the right or best choice.  You can change the category if you don't like eBay's choice.  I usually fill out all the additional detail description fields, and will put in my own descriptions if their canned ones don't seem to to the model justice.  I've copied an example of one of my descriptions below.

Walthers HO Southern Pacific C-30-1 Wooden Caboose No. SP 383  

 

This is a Walthers HO scale plastic model of a 30’wood sheathed caboose, Southern Pacific class C-30-1, factory painted dark freight car red and lettered in white as SP 383.  The car number was changed from 783 to 383 (a valid SP C-30-1 number) using decals and paint (see photo  of side), and the end handrails were painted safety white.  The model is complete with an interior, and has all handrails and grabs installed and painted.  It has Kadee No. 58 semi-scale couplers and plastic Andrews style trucks with metal wheels; the outside faces of the wheels have been painted black.  The model has no broken or missing parts, and it has no box, and it will be securely packaged for shipment.

Clark

Frequently used - Sunshine (vendor name), custom, built, RTR, kit, painted (can be
qualified with "factory"), and of course railroad names, and railroad initials, the
"SKU" (catalog # or kit #), and car type

Technically you don't have to say "freight car" "brass" "resin" but many people
do. And if you select the "freight car" category, Ebay will ask you about the car
type. But I don't know whether Ebay categories percolate up to match peoples' searches.

Advertising REALLY helps. :-)

Re: ebay help

Isnt there a "keyword" box to enter virtually anything you can think of to describe it? If the mini kit is a sunshine boxcar put in sunshine, minikit, Wabash, boxcar etc etc. It should pop up in thier search if the words match so put everthing you can possibly think of. Been a long time since I sold something on ebay. Buying on the other hand is something completely different.
