What are you hunting for at York this spring???

What are you in searching for at York? A specific car, engine, structure?

I'm in search of some Miller Engineering signs, a couple Korber buildings, and I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for K-line intermodal cars!!

Original Post

Nothing in particular, I'll be lucky to attend as this is the busiest upon busiest season for me at work (even more so this year with the biennial audit). 

I've got more than enough stuff. Anything that may catch my eye. Except the 773, I've got all the Postwar things I could ever want. Same goes for modern stuff. 

This will be my first York ( most wouldn't believe it seeing I grew up about 45 miles from it) But figured since I'm retired it's about time. Now to me it will probably be something in the postwar period. A lot of the new stuff I'm not that interested in as normally beyond what I want to pay for something. Would like to find a couple of set boxes I need and maybe even boxes for cars/engines. But that will not be high on my list. I'll be just looking and if something strikes my fancy I may check it out closer. 

That and meeting some of the people I talk with on the forums

While not seriously looking, I tend to adopt any excellent condition 2457 Lionel postwar metal caboose with steps that looks lonely on a dealer's table. They were only offered in 1945-47, and one came with my first train set on Christmas 1946. As commonplace as they were, it is hard to find them in excellent condition. The 5 that I have, so far, have ranged in price from $20. to $60. All 5 are slightly different from each other (something I did not realize when buying them). I have attended a number of York meets without finding one, but at the last York, I found two.

I can tell you that I will NOT be looking for 9200 / 9400 / 9700 / 19200 series boxcars. The ones that people sell new in the box for 10 or 20 bucks. I will not be looking for those at all. And somehow I will still come home with 6 or 8 of them!

You mean like this?????

I'm actually going to deliver much more than I expect to buy (like I said last time and bought 2 standard gauge sets).

Three lucky people are going to take delivery of a freshly built SP Daylightstandard gauge set with Lee Lines GS4 and sets of 4 or 5 passenger cars in matching red/orange/silver and black paint. All made from the original parts that have been waiting patiently to be finished for the past 35 years. 

But if I happen to see a JAD or Gold Standard GG1 at the right price, well

I've been putting together a set of the Madison car re-issues. Still need Baggage (19011) and Observation (19018).  Still looking for decent price on the bakelite scale reissue stock car (51402) and stock car (51301). Would love to find a clean 2032 Erie Alco pair.

Since I fly, I have to consider carry-on space impacts, so I limit myself to one pair of underwear, socks and clothes.  Just kidding about that part, but I have run into folks who think that way!

I have plenty of trains and go to York now just to see friends and meet new Forum members.   Somehow I still end up with a car load of trains going home with me.  This will be York 74 for me.  I had to re count to be exact.  

Joe, I also like your cases.  Well done.

A 3rd Rail Sunset Strasburg Railroad Mollie but being realistic, the odds of finding one there are most likely NADA!!!! So, if any of you reading this knows of one available somewhere, I won't feel the least bit embarrassed if you pity me, just please email any tips and leads. Thanks.

.....all my friends.......already have more trains than I will ever need (though, I still manage to get one or two). However, it truly is an opportunity to see everyone....

I always enjoy meeting Forum members who are York 1st timers.....if you see me, please introduce yourself.......I'm the middle-aged guy who has been described as the dork with the bow tie and the nerd glasses......

Structure kits, brass side door cabooses (York is a lousy place to find either), but new, interesting to me, prototypes, and manufacturers( yes, it is possible.... Think Menards). It just dawned on me that the lack of new prototypes might be due to an inability to get molds back, therefore nobody will invest in new molds? Without that, will be lucky to find different ice cream shops and Amish buffets.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Ken, the Welz pans are just ok.  The hot set up for your E-60 is the pans from the Atlas AEM-7.  I have done up a few and they work and look great.  If you need a photo, let me know.  That Atlas pan is the only one that is perfectly sprung for operating catenary.  I was going to use them on my Alela before we got the word a Legacy Acela may be coming.   I have a few sets of Welz Metroliners and run one live using the stock pans.

I will be on the hunt for the following:

1) Lionel's new theater camera car at their booth!

2) An Atlas 3 rail conductor dome car.

3) Say Hi to Alex M, John Will, Lee Willis, Mr. Muffins, Mike R., and many, many, more ( I always like to say hello to the OGR staff, even though I only see them once or twice a year.

4) A few Yuenglings - We cannot get these in Michigan.

5) The Latest DCS TIU and remote

6) A case of Hershey Bars for the family

7) A legacy K4, and anything that is a good deal really! 

8) K line UP 21 inch cars

9) Ross RH regular switches

10) New technology and new products.

Do you think BLI will be there with their new O scale animated water tower?

 

TCA Number 16-71884

I'm looking for another Legacy. A K-4 or maybe a GP35. Something that can do 036 curves. Also looking for a Railking Milwaukee Road passenger set and a Z-Stuff block signal. I have a wish list as long as my arm.
