Free shipping-10 new GN 40' steel box car kits by Intermountain HO

Andy Carlson
 


Hello folks-

I have 10 new Great Northern HO box car kits, all 40'cars, and all GN. Mint, new from the Duane Buck collection. they are as follows-

1) IM #41001-26 GN 12 panel as-delivered mineral red scheme w/lg sideways goat medallion
2) IM #41001-28
3) IM #41001-29
4) IM  #41001-27
5) IM # GN-12 special run 37 AAR boxcar mineral red w/lg sideways goat
6) IM #48453-10 40' PS-1 mineral red lg sideways goat
7) IM #48453-06
8) IM #48453-07
9) IM #48453-08
10) IM #48453-11

These cars are all mineral red, and are in schemes for these box cars when they were delivered new. These would be useful for late 1940's era, up until the merger if heavy weathering were applied. all 10 cars have different numbers. 5 12 panels, 4 PS-1's and 1 '37 AAR (though GN got some '37 AAR 40'box cars as leases, these were after 1960, so for our era, bogus).

Offered for $88, and shipping is included to the US. I accept checks and money orders. With a small fee PayPal is accepted, as well.

If interested, contact me off-list at <midcentury at sbcglobal dot net>
Thanks,

a fun glimpse into the Western Union operation

Hi List Members,
 
We were recently discussing the Ambroid Western Union car.
 
For those interested in seeing the whole train, have a look at the image below.
 
Unfortunately the cars do not appear to match the Ambroid model.
 
Still, a fun glimpse into the Western Union operation.

Dear Mike,

I appreciate your clarifying the policy.  I admit, I have not always confined my sales announcements to the Friday noon to Sunday midnight timeframe.  And, as Groups IO has not made it obvious—at least to this dummkopf—how to reply to a single member, your suggestion for the seller to include an email address, using AT and DOT, should make it simpler for all of us.  Thanks for the oversight.

Mike,

I find this phrase a bit nebulous- could you elaborate?

Selling messages on the STMFC

Mikebrock
 

Guys,

It is clear that some members of the RealSTMFC are not completely familiar with the group’s rules governing listing and/or selling items. This a bit puzzling since every member has read and has agreed with the rules.

 

I would also note that references will at times refer to just the STMFC. These references refer to the RealSTMFC.

 

The following over riding rule  governs the STMFC’s functions: ALL SUBJECTS OTHER THAN THOSE DIRECTLY ASSOCIATED WITH STEAM ERA FREIGHT CARS ARE PROHIBITED FROM MEMBER MESSAGES. Thus, all admin, security, or "policing" functions will be conducted only by myself or my representatives. Warnings about virus activity is strictly prohibited. Threads or subjects may be terminated only by myself or my representatives. When threads/subjects are terminated, members are expected to avoid sending messages associated with such threads/subjects.

 

The following is a summation of the STMFC rules governing selling: Announcements of steam era freight car related items for sale are permitted BUT actual lists of items should be made available from the seller to interested members in response to  their personal request rather than in the seller’s message. Announcements of such sells should be kept at a minimum. The primary objective of the group is to exchange information concerning the subject.

 

Messages regarding the selling of products associated with freight cars as part of a commercial enterprise must be sent during the period of noon Friday EST and Sunday midnight EST.

Each seller is allowed one message unless a correction is needed.

 

Seller messages MUST include OFF GROUP addresses for replies. Replies by members to seller messages MUST be OFF GROUP.

Selling messages MUST include a statement that replies MUST be OFF GROUP and must include an Email address to which responders can reply to. This address should use the term "AT" instead of the "@" sign to ensure that the address is not processed by system software. The reply must be sent to the email address including the "@" sign and NOT to the STMFC.

 

Repliers are free to use any reply technique as long as it replies to the seller’s email address and not that of the STMFC.

 

So, it seems fairly simple. If a member has a list of steam era freight car items to sell, he/she prepares a list and informs the RealSTMFC membership of that via Email and provides an Email address of the list owner. Interested members can ask the owner for a copy of the list using the seller’s Email address. Interested members are then in contact with the seller and the STMFC has no further function regarding the seller or buyer.

He shows up at the Buckeye Railroad Memorabilia show in Columbus, Ohio at least once per year (the show is twice per year). 

He customizes his collection for each show; more freight car photos at RPMs, for example).

Bob makes many of the two and even some one-day regional shows.  In my experience, Kirkland and Berea (but not always both) around Cleveland and two shows a year at the Columbus, Ohio State Fairgrounds.  Marlboro, Mass. near Boston.  For smaller regional shows he brings the RR material germane to that area.  He really gets around once doing something like 40 shows a year in past times.  Not so much now but certainly the major shows in the east and sometimes farther.  He is a huge asset to our historical and modeling efforts!

Bob's Photos was at the Chicagoland RPM last year. I bought the Tichy floor and queen posts for the FGE project build from him. He was in different location off of the main hallway across from the restaurant.
