Now if I can only find the correct Bing engine.... and afford it.

2017-11-08 08-04-19_conrad-antiquario Katalogarchiv Bing 1928

Dennis take a look on eBay in Germany, there is some Bing gauge one, but be carefull the pieces offered are sometime not so good..... the best ones are for sale in large auction houses.

And after Bing there is Marklin..... gauge one is great but may be very expensive. Some nice sets are affordables as this one from Marklin in 1928-29.

Hi Daniel,

Is the three rail gauge one track the same width as the LGB two-rail? I forgot that Bing and Marklin ran gauge one on three rail track. Is it hard to find the track? Is there a modern manufacturer?

Kind Regards,

George

Hello George,  

Yes the original Marklin tracks have the same width as LGB and you can run old gauge one cars on them. The tracks by themselves are not always easy to find especially the Marklin progress ones, illustrated on the pictures, they sell for 10-15 € each in good condition. You can find modern tracks in Germany, i have never seen them on eBay but they are also expensives;  same price as the old original ones or  even more. Electro switches also command high prices, must be around a hundred each.

Very best,   Daniel

 

Here's a billboard I made for my standard gauge floor layout.  I made the frame in my shop one afternoon and used some leftover radiator screen to add some bling to it.  I finally got around to taking a screen saver shot for the photo,  had it printed 5x7 and secured it in place with 4 window glazing points.

quite some time ago i picked up a few bags of various O scale ties at a train show that were on sale and every so often when i'm watching a video or just enjoying a sunny day on the patio, i'll break out the white glue & an X-acto knife and make a crate or a pallet.  the barrels are just a collection odd lots over the years...

went to my first estate sale today. Took The Boss, and we both had a great time. And she spent more than I did, so that's good . The only train stuff I didn't get was some Prewar Lionel, with boxes, that I already had. There was a train board, that had a Circus set up on, with a straight section of track, included a 671 and tender, Marx 999 no tender, a couple Postwar Lionel cars, and a Postwar Flyer car. The bidding quickly went for more than  i was interested in, so I left before it sold. Got enough track for storage lines, a Marx PRR 3/16 Gondola I didn't have,some other Marx 3/16 cars I already have, a 999 and tender, a couple Prewar Lionel cars,some MPC stuff, and a neat home made or kit car with Lionel trucks. There were several box lots of Tootsie Toy,Midge, and other cars and trucks. I won one box. There was a lot of interest in these. I'll be posting the stuff I don't want in the for sale forum. Sorry for the crappy pics, I didn't want to wait to go downstairs to go thru everything.

The loving wife got me a set of Lionel 18, 19, and 190 coaches in green, pretty good shape. Now I have to figure out what loco t look for to pull them.

The 263E was separate sale from the passenger cars. 

The 255E was issued about 8 years ago and most of the cars were DAP cars.

i was the 263 in the last catalog and Regis got it for me.

Did they hit the same hue of Orange on the new loco?  Just curious as I bought some 1685/6/7 Pullmans and the Red was darn near Pink....  It really surprised me as I swear I had seen plenty of those MTH cars and nice red. It really caught me off guard.  I assume it must have just been a poor batch of paint or something.  Anyway, not really related, but I'm curious as to how consistent they have been on all those short run Orange cars.

 

Thanks,

To me the 2 sets definitely share the same orange.

My newest large tinplate structure. Metttoy Emergency Ward 10 Hospital. Needs some work, but I picked it up on the cheap considering these can go for a do do load of $$$$. Need to use the lower tower to make a copy for the missing top tower.

I think.  Hard to tell by the auction.   Nothing to judge the length by. I think they made it both ways.  I'm pretty sure it is the O version, the couplers are pretty good size.  We'll see when it gets here. Price was good enough I didn't care and no one else bid again????!!

I finally managed to buy a McCoy Black Diamond Short Line set. It came with a version of the log car that I have never seen. Now all I have to find is the correct engine to go with the cars.IMG_20180927_213948597IMG_20180929_091457072IMG_20180929_091505486IMG_20180929_192255

The big brown truck just came with gifts from Stout. A couple of Collector Classics Dorfan Repro crocodiles and a original 3920. The 3920 is the only original std Gauge Dorfan I have that runs with the original motor and wheels. Howls like crazy but I’m sure oil and grease will fix that.

Steve, What color Dorfans did you get?

Joe, the crocs are a red and a orange. The orange is actually a duplicate and may fall victim of being repainted. The 3920 is orange. I’ve oiled it and it quieted right down. Still need to grease the gears. I’ll take to Sunday’s SW meet and give it a good test.

Hi Steve, I assume that was the PA auction. I somehow missed that one. I think it was parent weekend at college.

It looks like there were some nice deals. I missed out on a couple of repro 840 power stations. Did Lionel have smoke in their repro station like MTH? If so, did Lionel or MTH smoke better than the other?

Ahh! That was a good auction. I bought some of Terry's items. That auction was competitive.

Several weeks ago I took a trip to California to drop my son off for his freshman year of college.  I was able to bring back a few items including something that has been on my wish list for years, a Standard Gauge JAD Twentieth Century Limited streamliner.  I had only seen pictures before, but it is really beautiful in person.  The MTH NYC 400E arrived last night.  Looks great together!  The pictures below do not do it justice.

Yes I did.  I previously got the 4 car AF repro blue litho president's set from him.  

Joe, I saw both of those sets at our SP meet. He also has a stunning set of green litho Flyer cars and was working on a brown set if I recall. Steve does an amazing job replicating the litho presidential type flyer cars. I have a blue set also, but these are much older.
