Approx ten years ago I had occasion to purchase a big batch of 2-rail scale freight cars from an estate of a fellow who just loved to build and assemble model railroad cars. I bought them even while I am basically an HO guy. At the time I thought I would take them to my retirement in Thailand where I was thinking of setting up an HO, O, and maybe an On30 layouts over there. Things changed, I moved to St Augustine, FL where I am building a HO layout.

About a year ago I sold off a beautiful O scale steam loco I had bought to pull these cars. Today I got these 5 boxes of freight cars out on my stowage and intend to photo and inventory them tomorrow, then put them up for sale. I intend to sell them cheap, and in groups by the box instead of individually. At this time the boxes have 8, 10, 10, 11, 11, and 3 cars each. Most of those boxes are the size you would find at Staples with multi reams of copy paper in them.

Since freight charges could add up with this batch, and I am not willing to spend LOTS of time to package them all up that careful for mailing, I would hope someone local in Florida might be interesting in picking the up.

Another alternative is I may take them to a train show this Sat Nov23 at the Morocco Shrine Auditorium in Jacksonville FL. Then we have another show in Deland FL this Jan

I'm looking to get $12 each for these cars. Photos on request

No good taking to Jacksonville,.....turns out it was a TCA show, so only TCA members could display.

But I did manage to meet an O-scaler on line via a note about that show. He invited my to have a look at his very nice layout. he bought a few of the cars.
