UP FOR BID IS A HUGE COLLECTION OF LIONEL,MTH,ATLAS, AND WEAVER 3-RAIL ELECTRIC TRAINS. THIS IS NO ORDINARY COLLECTION IN THAT IT HAS TAKEN ME 40 YEARS TO COLLECT THESE. IT IS BASED AROUND THE MAINLINE OF MID AMERICA FROM THE LATE 60's TO EARLY 80's - THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD. tHIS ROAD HAS BEEN A PASSION OF MINE ALL MY LIFE STARTING FROM MY FIRST ENGINE BROUGHT HOME BY MY FATHER FROM VANDALIA ILLINOIS IN EARLY 1972. I PLAYED WITH THESE FOR YEARS UNTIL CARS GIRLS AND LIFE STARTED TO HAPPEN. 20 YEARS LATER I FOUND THAT BOX OF TRAINS AGAIN AND IT STARTED IN ME TO GO FIND MORE. WENT TO A FEW TRAIN SHOWS AND VIOLA....THE BUG HAD HIT. YOU KNOW THIS STORY. ANYWAY I BOUGHT ALL I COULD UP UNTIL 2005, USING BOOKS AND FILM TO FIND PROBABLE CARS AND ROADNAMES FOUND ON THE NOW DEFUNKED I.C.. WELL HERE IT IS. LET ME SAY THIS UP FRONT....I DONT WANT TO PART WITH THESE AT ALL....THAT BEING SAID IM IN CONTRACT TO PURCHASE A HORSE FARM AND SINCE THESE HAVE BEEN HOLDING SPACE IN STORAGE INSTEAD OF MAINLINE DUTY ITS TIME FOR THEM TO GO. THESE ARE BY NO MEANS - PERFECT....BUT....THEY ARE WELL TAKEN CARE OF AND SOME HAVE NEVER BEEN OUT OF THEIR RESPECTIVE BOXES. I HAVENT HAD TRACK LAID ANYWHERE SINCE THE 1980'S. i HAVE MADE UP A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS SALE....WITH SOME RESEARCH AND PRICES ON BOXES ETC. THE NUMBERS THAT MAKE UP THE INITIAL COST OF REPRODUCING THIS LIST TODAY IS TO THE RIGHT. MOST OF THE 20,25,35 DOLLAR FIGURES ARE AN ESTIMATE BASED ON THE AVERAGE PRICE OF THESE CARS. EVERYTHING ON THIS LIST IS C5/6 OR BETTER CONDITION WITH MOST LITERALLY NEVER COMING OUT OF ITS BOX....READ ON.
