Getting rid of "out of era" freight cars.
« on: May 13, 2008, 04:53:11 PM »
As I concentrate more and more on the prewar PRR, I have quite a few post-1954 Shadow Keystone cars from Kadee and Micro-Trains, a set of special run IMRC Merchandise Service Shadow Keystone Cars, as well as other definitely "transition era" cars like the Monon with the white band with "Hoosier Line" on top and a Reading with the slant lettering.

I have never been to an N scale convention, but I gather quite a bit of buying, selling, and trading goes on. Since I plan to be in Louisville next month, should I bring along what I wish to cull? Most of the cars are runners. Also, how about cars from other makers, some of which have had added details or at least end reporting marks added?

By all means bring your unwanted items. Room sales would be the simplest way to go. Lay the stuff out on the bed, table, whatever and leave the door open. Great way to move some no longer needed trains and put a face on a lot of email addresses while you're at it. Except for the cost of the room, it's free.
