Ertl 9513 1930 Diamond T Tank Truck in 1:34 scale

pro hobby ·
Ertl 9513 1930 Diamond T Tank Truck in 1:34 scale This interesting diecast model is close to G scale and could be added to a "garden layout". Historically it is a model of a typical fuel tanker of 1930. The model has an overall length of 8 inches. The model is labelled for True Value. Note: True Value Hardware did not exist in 1930 and would likely not operate a fuel tank truck. This is a very attractive model but not realistic. The plan is to disassemble the model and create a dump truck...

Re: Railroad Books are Going Up in Value. What’s up with this?

Well, I have never seen $50-$60 Morning Sun Books for $10. Believe me I would have bought a bunch of them. The best I ever did was get two of them (NYC) for $20 each on eBay plus shipping which wasn't a whole lot. I also paid almost double ($70) for "Rails up the Raritan" (the story of the Raritan River RR) but I had to. It's the only book on that railroad and it was long out of print. I kept hearing rumors of a 2nd printing but after a few years I gave up waiting. Unfortunately, the 2nd...

My experience is that you can't give even excellent railroad books away. The guys like me who really enjoy books already have large libraries. Many of us older folks are trying to sell off our collections. The younger folks prefer to get all of their railroad information from the internet. I have tried to sell excellent books that cost $50 to $80 new for $10 at train shows without takers. NH Joe

Asking that price and getting it are two different things. One thing IS for sure though is that railroad books tend to be very niche market items, and just like limited interest magazine, they are priced accordingly. I can get about four years of Hot Rod which has a big circulation for what a year of Trains costs me. After these books go out of print and if they are especially good, the prices go upward. Look to see what an old copy Of Sulzer's Ghost Railroads of Indiana goes for. Copies of...

This is the same as what you see on places like Ebay. Do a search for a certain train car and you will find a whole range of prices. Doing a search for a certain book, you can come up a number of book sellers all with a range of prices from very reasonable to stratospheric. Use different sources such as Amazon , Abebooks or Alibris and you can more often than not find what you are looking for at a price you can afford. Book condition will be a factor in price as will how rare the book might...

Some railroad books become very popular and the prices soar, others you can't give away. Here are a few of the more expensive books. The Shay Locomotive: Titan of the Timber: This book is typically for sale any where from $250. to $800. The Trail of the Blue Comet: This one usually runs between $100. and $200. The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Railroad Lighting: There were two volumes of this book, one on lanterns and one on lamps.The typically run over $100. a piece.

I buy books in which I have interest, when announced. RR books are short print runs (5-10,000?) and once they are gone, they might be hard to obtain in the future. The $174 for a DT&I book is Amazon hype. Amazon's first price is reasonable, the next quotes are from LaLa Land.

I never even heard of it until he recommended it. I paid $150 for an autographed edition. I wouldn't trade it for $2000.

Prices for items online are often determined automatically by computer algorithms, and sometimes they become outrageous. A couple of weeks ago, I was looking at a book which normally sells for +/- $20. Next day, I went back and the price had jumped to almost $2000. Next day, it was back to $20. I also had an item on Amazon go up $1.50 while it was in my cart. Don't put too much stock in these fluctuations, and don't overpay. All hail our computer overlords!
