I purchased this on a business trip in 2013 at a small store in Colorado. The front boiler plate looks to have been replaced, but the rest appears correct and original. The grease hardened in the gear box so I disassembled, cleaned and applied red 'n tacky grease. The motor was missing a few ball bearings so I replenished them as well. The smoke unit was upgraded for liquid usage. There is a chip out of the one tender step, and the box is missing the flap not pictured. I ran this at...

Can I disassemble them and spay them with a can of spray paint? I there any particular kind of paint I should be using? Where is a good place to buy the paint? Where can I get Lettering and Numbering for the cars? I appreciate any help with this. Mark

Gear Box 57113 1:43 scale diecast model of a 1950 Chevy 3100 Pickup Truck This a very well detailed diecast model that is similar to a 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup truck. This is the "three window" version. As shown the model features opening side doors and tailgate. The model could be used with an O scale model railroad layout or diorama. The model depicts a Texaco Fire Chief delivery truck with stake bed.

Hello, Recent purchase of a boxed Hafner Overland Flyer Set that is Pre-war. Not sure if this is all original, but the lithographs and paint are very clean. Curious to know if this is a true box set. Tender livery is Illinois Central, and...
I built a couple of side tracks on the upper level of my Tombstone Southwest RR so that some conventional locomotives could rest and be ready if needed, but I needed to isolate the track with toggle switches, which I wanted to post near the siding. I was going to make a couple of boxes for the switches out of wood, but as I passed by a can of spray paint I got an idea. I have tons of spray paint tops lying around (always wondering what I could do with them), so I decided to make this the...
ILLUMINATED BOX CAR Coming to auction the week of December 11th we will be offering an illuminated box car. Sound strange? Not So! Just imagine this box car sitting on your favorite industrial siding being unloaded at night time and the lights on so the work force can see what they are doing in safety. No flash lights need here ;o) Lights only come on when either or both sliding doors are fully open and go out when the...
I’m thinking of kit-bashing an electric box-cab or steeple-cab on to an old Marx motor I salvaged from a find at a train show last year. I want keep it simple. Has anyone else kit-bashed a box-cab or steeple-cab locomotive? If so lets see them.
For what you listed, you did real well, if it also included the 275ZX transformer. You didn't say exactly what you paid but if it was in the $30-40 range you did well. Some people don't think, with mention of condition????
FYI - SAWBUCK sawbuck Originally slang for a sawhorse, fashioned iin the 18th century by lashing together two pieces of wood into an "X" shape. With an X-shaped support at each of two ends, the contraption served to hold wood for cutting. With the advent of the U.S. 10 dollar bill, which bears the Roman numeral X, "sawbuck" became slang for the bill, as people associated the shape with the sawhorse. The slang term "buck" originated in the mid-19th century in reference to the dollar. In the...
Now that the dust has settled on our posting (May 14, RRinaBox York experience), we would like to express our appreciation for all of the interesting comments. We are also thankful to Allan Miller for guiding the conversation. During the meet RRinaBox gave a presentation to the forum (see Grandstand video). See our website (rrinabox.com) and we are also on facebook. Looking forward to seeing everybody in October.
It has been suggested many times that the York Meet be open to the public. At least the dealer halls and charge admission. First, as was pointed out to me by Dick Maddox, York is not a major city so I'm not sure how much of a public crowd you would attract. Greenberg holds a show at the Fairgrounds so their attendance would be one benchmark. Second, the member halls tables are not always manned by the table holder and it would be difficult to provide security. Lastly, it was also pointed out...

I hope they keep it a members-only event for as long as I'm around, and I think it's a pretty darn safe bet that they will. There are plenty of opportunities for the public to get more than enough exposure to toy and model trains (not to mention real ones), especially in the months preceding the holiday season.
Jumping on this crazy thread kinda late, I have to say that with the condescending tone from "RR In a Box", Dennis had the best answer to RR's whinning.........."I haven't missed you in two and a half years and I certainly will try and miss you at this years YorK". I submit that RR In a Box doesn't understand who and/or what York is about. To say the least its' existence is from and for those ALREADY interested in the hobby. It's not browsing at the Mall (thank you Rodney Dangerfield).
I'm all for a tax free weekend but in fairness it should be tax free for ALL sellers and buyers at the meet!!! Good! You agree that the York Meet should be tax free. Isn't that what it is now for ALL sellers and buyers? I trust that the Eastern Division leadership is doing what's best for the majority of it's members and other TCA guests. I appreciate their efforts to keep the York Meet unique and exciting.
Not quite, Bob. Those of us in the dealer halls pay PA sales tax (often the tax is incorporated in the selling price). In any case, the PA revenue folks get their chunk from gross sales. Do we like it? No, of course not, but that's just how it works. But we also don't gripe about those in the member halls being excluded from the tax requirement, the imposition of which would open a big can of worms in more ways than one.
