business. This is simply thinning of my personal collection. My selling
is brought about by health issues, which have knocked me out of the
work force far in advance of retirement years.
Parting with these items helps pay some bills, with
few dollars left afterward for hobbies. Here is some railroadiana which
was accumulated through a lifetime. Including train
orders available at any time- No bidding against other collectors; no
see if one day there'll be flimsies listed of interest for you. Pick
and choose exactly what you want- Not what some sales lot forces you to
********** EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:As
of January 31, 2013, I will no longer ship to points outside of the
USA. Sorry- But the fact is my sales are usually small dollar amounts,
often well under $10.00 total. I cannot afford the time, nor the fuel
to go into town, and spend time fighting the idotic bureaucracies as
required to get items sent out to you. My health is fragile and this
seemingly small added stress to you, is very bad
for me. Exception:
I will sell, IF
you have a definite drop point within the USA- A friend, family,
whoever it might be.
Some folks seem to have an odd idea- That as I am not a
business, I am expected to just sit on items, until they
send payment. Such a concept is unreasonable. I WILL NO LONGER DO SO.
After 14 total days, any item(s) set aside are released and available
for sale- First come, first served. If still there when you get around
to paying, fine. If not, sorry. I am generally very easy to work with,
but this has now simply become tiresome.
items are sold or traded as-is. NO returns. NO refunds. Before any
purchase or trading, please look closely at any scanned item shown. If
no scan, I will do so for one or two items, upon request. Please ask
questions. Price shown
is for ONE item only. From any station listed, there might be one piece
available, or many. If curious about quantities, please inquire!

US Buyers- As
form of payment, I accept personal check, cashiers check and mailed
money orders. A verified United States Postal Money Order ships the
first business day after receipt. Unless I know you, all other payments
must clear my bank. Your item is held until that time. I will not
accept wired payments, due to the fact I must then drive around chasing
after them. (No thanks!) Due to past
problems with such services, neither
electronic payments nor any credit cards are accepted.
Buyers- If other than US currency, please pay only using a US funds
All other nations- (If you have a confirmed USA drop point, otherwise I
will not ship), I will accept the following payment methods: 1)
Verified US currency in a registered letter, at your risk. 2) Either a
or money order in US funds. PLEASE NOTE= Method #2 requires that my
bank receive actual funds from the source where you purchased the
payment, BEFORE I will ship. This can require up to (8) eight weeks, or
I ship using only the United States Postal Service, and only
to points within the USA.
Total cost of shipping will be determined after I know what
you wish to purchase!
As they continue to make inconvenient changes, USPS has made this
option no longer
First Class Mail, USA. (Most of my shipments are flimsies in a flat
envelope.) It can still be applied to Media Mail,
Parcel Post and Priority Mail shipments. For packages sent via a flat
Class rate, your only option is Certified Mail, which starts at $2.80,
without signature. But at least this provides a tracking number.
Minimum shipping and handling charge, is $2.50 for First Class USPS. Most train order packages seem to go in the
$2.00 range for First
Class USPS. Priority shipping starts at $4.99.
These amounts are for postage, and some packaging materials. With
hopefully a few pennies left over for gasoline ($$$!!!) to drive your
item to our post office. Note:
Unless it's a
can go media mail, I only use First Class or Priority.
I do not
negotiate shipping costs. They are what they are- Nobody is cheap these
days! Wherever possible, I recycle clean foam peanuts or bubble wrap.
Whenever I must purchase packaging materials, that cost is passed along
is extra. I would urge you to purchase it. Shipments are all FOB my
location- All responsibility for damage, or loss of a shipped item
passes to that carrier. During the last 15+ years, I have seen a few
packages delivered slowly. Otherwise, there's never been a problem.
