If you happen to have any spare train orders, we'd be interested in learning about them.
On occasion, we will purchase small batches. For our collection,
trading, or resale. Please keep in mind that we may already have what
you offer. Some copying locations seem to be very plentiful.
Also, most who seriously collect train orders, want examples
which were copied at line side stations. Done inside of the depots or towers, by telegraphers, operators,
levermen and agents. Crew copies, unless covering an unusual event, would be of very
minimal interest. If at all.
Modern methods of moving trains, such as the MBSC (Manual Block System
Clearance), and various forms of Track Warrants, Permits or Bulletins, those copied by engine
crews of today, or run off via a remotely stationed printer, are not what we seek. These superseded flimsies, mostly
post-dating the true train order era. Some fans mistakenly call
these papers "train orders". Which is a complete misnomer.
pads- It will depend upon what you have. It's best if this
item is a full pad, with it's brown paper cover sheet, (some had this
cover. Some did not), and cardboard backer. More often than not, we
won't purchase these items.
