Group,

I have for sale about 100 RTR freight cars from the steam and transition era. Most are Red Caboose, Intermountain, Proto, Athearn, & other brands like this. There are also some brass examples, resin kits, and wood passengers cars in the mix. Lastly, there are a few locomotives included in this sale. Most of it is surplus to my collection which centers around western and midwestern roads such as ATSF, SP, and D&RGW.

Most models include Kadee couplers and metal wheels, unless otherwise mentioned. Some have been weathered while others are new in box. Many of these are missing their original boxes but prices are reasonable and large volume discounts are offered. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal is preferred. Please PM me for a full list in PDF for as it's far too long to post here. Thanks you all, and enjoy your day!

Matthew failed to mention that ALL communications regarding his list WILL be OFF GROUP. Meaning that if you want his list send him a message to his personal address…NOT the RealSTMFC…requesting that he send you  his list sent to your address, not that of the RealSTMFC. Failure to do so will land you [ and him ] in jail.

Mike - the problem with this approach is that unless Matthew sets his profile to make his email address visible to members of the group, it does not appear possible to respond directly to him.  I don't know if it is group IO or firefox, but clicking on "reply to sender" (or even "reply to group") gives a menu that steers you to email applications that you might not use.

It's possible (I hesitate to say easy) to respond privately by simply going to the groups.io page, and replying though that interface.  There is a green Reply to Group button on the lower left, but this can be toggled by the Private icon to the lower left so that only the original poster will receive your message..

BTW, I think Matthew is blameless here.  He did say "Please PM me for a full list...".  In case anybody isn't aware, PM means "private (or personal) message".

On the initial email I see a reply to sender option. It worked for me. See attached. image1.jpeg

     Can't speak for other applications, but Mac Mail allows you to select the sender's name in the email you received,  and choose "reply to sender." Works every time.

Hi Mike, Chuck, et al.,
 
Chuck is right, and it is not just a Firefox thing.  I use Windows Live Mail primarily,but I also have have TWC/Spectrum email.  It appears to be a Groups.IO phenomenon and it appears with both of my servivers.  I think that folks looking to sell, buy or otherwise want private responses need to include their email address in their message.  One way to do that is to include it in the signature block as I routinely do.  See below.
 
My two cents.

Hi Brian, Dave, et al.,
 
I am aware of these buttons, but they do not function as advertised with any of my email servers.  (In addition to WLM and TWC/Spectrum, I also have the current MS Mail.)  Sometimes I can decipher the sender’s email address when it shows up, as Brian’s does, in the for, “[address]@...” by substituting “@” for the “=” sign and dropping the “@groups.io,” but I have occasionally had problems with that too.  This problem is common to all Groups.IO lists to which I belong.
 
I think the bottom line here is that those looking for a direct/private reply need to provide their email addresses.
 
Pax,

Ralph:

My "fix" doesn't have anything to do with email providers, or the buttons that you can see in their interfaces.  It involves going to our groups.io website and using the Messages section. 

This is worth knowing about in case (a) a seller/lister neglects to include his/her email, or (b) you wish to contact a group member off-list about any number of possible topics.

I use Outlook. At the top of each email I receive on this list it says,

<main@RealSTMFC.groups.io; on behalf of; and gives the name and email address of the sender>

I captured the address for Matt from that line, emailed him privately, selected an item I wanted to purchase, bought it and paid for it.  Just look for that line in the email you receive.

I caught that Dave and PM'd Mathew using the "reply to sender" key at the bottom of the message.
The same method was uded to repsong to another list member earlier this week and it seemed to
work. Thus I wonder what the problem is for others who cannot seem to do the same thing?

Glad to learn you made it back from Colorado without getting cuaght in one of there avalanches this year.

My best, Don Valentine

Well, guys, as already stated I sent my resquest for a list twenty minutes ago by using the "reply to sender" key at the bottom of the page.
Since the list has already arrived from Matthew that seems to work. Being woefully incompetent when it comes to computers all I can tell 
you is that I'm using an old Lenovo using Google and Yahoo Mail with Windows 7 that I've hated for a year and wish I still had XP.  My 
favorite saying about Microsoft is "Never have so few made so much money by offering so little of value". As one of my MIT Model RR 
Club cohorts exclaimed recently, if the government were smart they would change the copyright laws on computer software so that the 
copyright expired the day the originator of the software stopped providing service for it. Then we would not be forced to by these lousy 
upgrades each of which in my opinion is worse the the crap it replaced. It would also help if the government completely phased out
Microsoft and went to Linus software or something else in the publkic domain. 

Sorry for the soapbox,  Don Valentine
