eBay Estate - TT

Post by Richard-B »

All...

Many items listed, both rolling stock and engines, from a Northern California Estate.

Seller said source was a TT modeler in Mill Valley... but I have not been able to verify.

NB. I have no connection to these auction items...

The sales have generated some unusually high prices, in my opinion. But it has been stuff I haven't seen on the market for a long time!

As have a number of recent TT items... They either tend to go low... or VERY high.

A number of engines in the past few months seem to be going over the pond....

I purchased a few items from this estate. Some at a good price. Some I Wanted, I paid a bit more than I normally would. One or two items I placed a cheap bid on and got.

Have a fleet of logging cars to prepare. Some nice MOW cars and a few others.

I chased after and purchased two flat cars, a 42' and a 50'.
The 42' car stripped down nicely into something I can use as a master to cast a fleet of cars. The deck came off.
The 50' car was very nicely built. The deck was not removable, but was thin enough that I can add a new deck on top. It will be a master as well.
I am going to use 1/32" thick, 3/64 scribed siding for the decks. That works out to about 5 1/2" deck boards. A bit narrow perhaps, but the next size up, 1/16" is close to 7 1/2" board which is too wide. The boards should be 6" or .050", but nobody makes scribed wood at that spacing.

I'll post pictures when I have some results.

The last American TT stuff offered on German ebay were six HP Products cars and two badly repainted F7s for about 750$. I think it's understandable we choose ebay.com.
I got some of the equipment from this auction as well, to get some trains running. Some of it is beautifully modeled, including uncoupling levers to the couplers. And some is spray painted without taking out the wheels from the truck. It will all need some reworking. But I'll show pictures as well. I got the other set of log buggies, Bill.
