E29CB6AC-2F9B-4F3D-9667-AACEC9B7A096Big thank you to Beth at The Public Delivery Track!..

I ordered the GGD coaling tower from her, and y’all know just how fragile that puppy is!...anyways, the outer box looked like it was drug behind the Fed Ex truck, instead of inside it,....my heart skipped a beat as I opened the box, only to discover Beth had carefully and skillfully lined the entire shipper with thick black foam!...the GGD coaling tower is in perfect condition with out a scratch, .....thank god!...I thought it was gonna be goner!...GREAT WORK Beth!...can’t thank you enough!..I’m super glad to do business with one of our forum sponsors!....that’s what makes the wheel go round!....thanks again Beth!..

Order one from Beth!..Dave! ...these things are getting harder and harder to find!...my buddy Lou ( Lou1985 ) actually tracked it down for me, and we called Beth and sealed the deal!...she’s awesome!...I’ll be sending more dollar bills her way for sure!..I thought for sure that thing had taken the hit for the team, but it was safe and secure!....I’m literally speechless!...

Interesting timing... I purchased the same tower from Beth about a year or so ago. The last few days, I’ve been doing a long overdue clean out of stuff in my basement (need more room for trains ) and needed something to take a stack of old LP’s to the dump - I forgot just how heavy a stack of LP’s can be, so I knew I needed something strong. Luckily, I still had the shipping box from my tower (with the same black foam inside) - it is extremely heavy duty, so I’m not surprised your tower survived the rough treatment. I think you’ll love the tower - it is a real beauty.

Beth Marshall is an icon among O gauge dealers. I have accumulated large collections of Weaver TOFCs and Wood Chip Hoppers, most of which have been purchased from the Public Delivery Track. I have also purchased a number of other trains from Beth over the years and spoken to her many times. If you are looking for old new stock, the Public Delivery Track is the first place to check. Most importantly, Beth is a woman of integrity, who really cares about her customers. She is really missed at the York Meets.

LPs? Email me. I'm a huge fan of vinyl in addition to trains.

Pat, I may just do that after I get my brains back in my head. Today was Friday the 13th all day at work. Nothing went right, but I was still me. Ended the day in the rain at work in the dumpster, long story, but getting take out now. I'll take a look sometime after dinner if I'm able. Thanks again Pat, keeping my cheerful with a day like today.

Well, on the advice of Pat, I ordered not just one, but both brown and black towers. I actually didn't see the black one when I first looked, but a few days later I saw it. So, I ordered it. I got a message from Beth asking me if I really wanted to order a second one because she just sent one to me. Well, being that my inbox usually is a mess from notifications, I didn't see it until late Friday before Labor Day Weekend, which I replied with a resounding yes please sorry it took so long to reply.

The brown one arrived on Labor Day, and the black the following Monday. No damage to boxes, look great. Now the only thing that remains is that my plans for the back bedroom which is currently storage, will have to start getting cleared out so I can at least build a layout(be about 126"x98" or so). I had in the past was not sure if the outcome of the house, moving or not. Well, I've decided build one anyway. I can't keep sitting here waiting for a tomorrow that just never seems to come. I still have to work on design, but know that my big steamers will get their wheels out whenever this gets built.

Gotta love it. Thanks Beth.
