Hi folks,

Well the former layout's benchwork and cabinets are now history (cabinets were donated), and it's time to find new homes for MORE items that won't be used on the new layout.  All but a couple of items from the "October York Version" of this Demolition Sale sold.   And I want to take a moment to thank everyone who purchased something!!!

Which now brings us to THIS new "ALLENTOWN ATMA" for-sale listing that supersedes my prior OGR for-sale listings in 2017.   This new listing contains quite a variety of items, ranging from large Standard Gauge items to O-Gauge rolling stock, accessories and "stocking stuffers" -- all at great prices. 

As always, all sales are FINAL.  No returns.  Prices do NOT include shipping.  First-come / first-served, and priority goes to the first buyer who says "I'll take it".   Please respond to the email address located in my OGR Forum profile.

****  Allentown ATMA Train Show delivery is available only on SATURDAY (Nov 11th), if you're interested in saving on shipping.  ****  Due to the very last-minute posting of this thread just one day before the Allentown show, Allentown delivery will be a cash-only basis (and let me know ASAP).  Otherwise, I accept Paypal (friends/family or add 3% for regular Paypal), USPS Money Orders, or personal checks for all other transactions. 

I do plan to attend the breakfast at the Hamilton St Diner before the train show on Saturday, so what better way to kick off the train show with an "early-bird" purchase rather than waiting in line on what's forecast to be a frigid cold morning??? 

Thanks for browsing my listing of nearly 40 offerings.  Have fun shopping.... and ENJOY!!!

VIII.  TW Trainworx B58 "Steel" Arch Bridge Kit, $997 MSRP (kit, assembly required).  I had planned for this to be a layout focal point for my new layout, but design changes required that this be eliminated from the final plans.   Condition = MINT, never used.  Offered at $695 for the kit.  Assembly required.

Original Post

Hi folks, thank you everyone for your email inquiries yesterday (Tuesday).  It's now Wednesday around 4AM Eastern Time, and I'm just getting around to responding to OGR Forum emails!   I'm donating the cabinetry around the perimeter of my old layout to Bucks County's Habitat for Humanity Restore program, and I'm hoping the cabinets will find a good home for a family that could really use them.  As luck would have it, the Habitat Restore folks are coming in a few hours to load the cabinets on their truck.  And there was SO MUCH to do yesterday to get the cabinets ready for pick-up, that I had no time whatsoever to respond to the MANY forum email inquiries.   Saying I got bombarded with OGR emails is an understatement!

I'm running on fumes right now (and feeling a bit sore too from all that physical work), but I will update the listing shortly so folks know which items are now spoken for.  As I said in my original post, the process will be first-come / first-served.  So please stay tuned for my email responses.  If you sent me an email (or two ) yesterday, I will respond to let you know where things stand.  Thanks, in advance for your understanding and patience.


Howdy Rocky,

It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely wife at York on Thursday!   Thank you for the OUTSTANDING DEAL on the Lionel Highway Crossing Gates!   I'm looking forward to the pictures of your new layout when it is installed at your house.  Bet ya can't wait?

Yes... your name is on the 5 your requested.  I've just been unexpectedly out of town for much of last week and early this week.  So I've been unable to pack things to send out shipping quotes.  I should be back tonight, and I plan to respond to everyone who expressed interest in purchasing items that required shipping.  There's a bunch more stuff I was gonna list too, but I haven't been able to do that either -- and I won't until I catch up on the shipping quotes on existing items in the listing.  Thanks for everyone's patience.


P.S.  Just a reminder folks, all of these items -- as well as the newly listed ones to be posted soon -- will be available for Allentown delivery on Saturday, November 11th.  Another great opportunity to save on shipping costs. 

Hi Folks,

Today is November 10th, and this listing has been updated in the spirit of the Allentown ATMA "First Frost" train show.  Nearly everything listed in the original York thread sold, and I want to thank everyone who helped find a new home for these items I won't be using on my new layout.   So the listing you're now viewing here is essentially a new for-sale listing -- even though I just updated the original "Demolition Sale" thread with LOTS of new offerings.

I will be attending the Allentown ATMA tomorrow... Saturday, November 11th only.  So if you see something listed here that you want to save on shipping, please let me know ASAP via the email in my OGR profile.  And I'll bring it with me to the show.  I'm also planning to attend the pre-show breakfast at the Hamilton Family Diner, where we've been known to take care of some business after a great breakfast!!!   

Due to the last-minute posting, all Allentown deliveries will be via cash.  Otherwise, Paypal, USPS Money Order, or personal checks are acceptable forms of payment.   For folks not attending Allentown on Saturday, all of these items are available for shipping or local pick-up in the southeastern PA area.

Many thanks, everybody... and enjoy some great pre-show shopping as we gear up for a terrific train season!!!



I had sent you an email earlier today regarding several items (XXII (mint car pair), XXXVI (Burn Switch Tower), and XXXVII (Hobo Tower)).

Since the last two items were updated to suggest sale pending, but the first one does not, I can't tell if my email was received (and maybe you just forgot to mark the mint cars pending?) or someone else bought the towers and my email didn't make it at all.  I obviously didn't receive a return email or I wouldn't ask the question.

Please advise  (my apologies if you left me a voice mail on my phone, I don't have it with me during the work day).

If someone else beat me to these items, I may not drive up to Allentown tomorrow.  Hoping it's just a missed update on the mint cars and I will be able to pick these up from you at the show.
