				Gulf Coast Lines / New Orleans, Texas & Mexico #70
				Missouri Pacific (NOT&M) #385  (1925)
				retired and scrapped  (c.1952)

      (This locomotive spent a quarter of a century hustling the fastest varnish of the New Orleans, Texas 
       & Mexico / Gulf Coast Lines / MP between Houston and New Orleans. A photo of this locomotive, as 
       MP / NOT&M #385 wheeling the Orleanean along at 70 MPH through southern Louisiana, appears at top 
       of page 126 of Mopac Power; and in later years at the bottom of page 124)
				
      (This plate is back from its brief Hollywood career, where it appeared in "Young Sheldon - Volunteers 
      at a Train Museum".  The episode featured a train museum in Texas and, of course, this plate.  It is 
      back and again available for sale, but now with a sprinkle of star dust.  Spoiler alert - it was 
      cleaned and repainted early on and doesn't actually have any rust or soot on the back.)

				New York Central (NYC) #957
				New York Central (NYC) #907
				Penn Central (PC) #9410
				
	(the bolt hole repair seems to have been done when the locomotive was still in service, as the repaired  
	 area seems to show signs of industrial-strength mounting - apparently from estate of a former NYC/PC 
	 shop personnel in the Cleveland area - found with assorted NOS but obsolete locomotive parts)

				Los Angeles Junction Ry #5
				
				(an extreme enlargement of the builder's plate part of the photo seems to show that
				 the whitish area at the bottom of the plate was how it was when it was in service. 
				 Looks like maybe poor masking or overspray from repainting a tiger stripe.

				Santa Fe  (AT&SF) #1605
				r/b to simple expansion  (1920) / scrapped 1950
				
    (Tandem compounds had high and low pressure cylinders in-line - sharing a common piston rod.  While
     successful, they required excessive maintenance to be cost effective. These 2-10-2's were designed as 
     helper locomotives, which spend as much time descending back down grades as pushing trains forward. 
     The trailing wheels were to give these locomotives better tracking when backing downgrade through curves.)

Shipping - Shipping is $14.00 per order - insurance included (to US addresses). International shipping - call or write for quote.  Your quantity discount will be in the shipping - buy several pieces and we pay anything over the basic rate.  Orders over $1000 shipping is free within North America.  To avoid delay please order by stock number, when shown.

We are located in Santa Rosa, California  Anyone near to here or passing through would be welcomed to pick up their items (by appointment) so as to save the shipping charge.  Unfortunately, we have no showroom - all our stock is wrapped and in storage (for its protection).



Our Customer Comments

Visa and M/C, Zelle,Paypal, as well as checks and money orders, accepted.

                                                                                                                     


Packing - We pack for success, not excuses.  We love old railroad china and relics as much as you do, so we would rather spend a bit more on packing materials (actually, we prefer to use clean recycled packing materials) than see a piece broken in transit.

Our success is collectors getting pieces they want, and only that.  Therefore, all sales are allowed a three day inspection period, within which time, unsatisfactory items may be returned for refund.

Trade / Sell - Perhaps you would like to suggest a trade ?   Unlike an Old World vegetable grocer, we do not care to haggle over the price of each piece, but if you think that you could suggest a trade, or other "deal," that would be mutually beneficial, we will be happy to hear you out.   Maybe you have a piece that doesn't exactly fit with your collection, and we have a piece that does - maybe a deal could be found.   Please recall though, that this is a commercial enterprise, so we would find no advantage in a trade for pieces of like value. Of course, we are always buying - from whole collections to single pieces.

Sales Tax / Ca. only - Orders shipped to California addresses must pay applicable sales tax.

Gift Wrap - For an extra $7.00 per gift, we will gift wrap any item(s) and mail it directly to the recipient.  Nothing too fancy, but we will box the item(s) and tailor the wrap to the occasion (birthday, Christmas or other), with a "from / to" tag filled out as you specify.

Wants lists - We have locomotive builder's plates - you want locomotive builder's plates, but unfortunately, these are not always the same items.  If you would care to send us your "want list", we will store it and notify you (e-mail or phone, your choice) if we get that item in stock.  There is no obligation on your part - this is only a notification service and interest survey.  Send to: Wants lists

All items first come, first served - if you like it, you can own it.  No false-hope teaser prices, no bidding stress, no sniping - everything is "Buy It Now" priced.  Prices subject to change without notice.

Questions and comments welcomed.
