From Bob Baxter:
As train shows aren't what they used to be and neither am I, I'm starting to take Parts of the Door Hollow Shortline and recreating a layout in the back of my "barn" train room.
Below is the loop that was the top of the DHS mountain. I'd like to donate it to someone who would use it. It's a loop of HO track, mounted on 3/32" plywood and is 55 inches from end to end. There was a bridge under the gap.
Below is a Trestle that I built about 15 years ago when I had really big ideas of an indoor layout. The curved LGB track is 52" tip to tip. The wooden part is 38 inches wide and is 18' from the bottom to track level. It's been a long time but I think the wood is Douglas fir. I'd like to get about $50 for it.
This building made some appearances on the Del Oro Modular layout but was too big for the DHS. It's a model of the famous Alpine Hose firehouse in Georgetown Colorado where the Georgetown loop starts. It stands 30" at the tower. The entire unit is 18" deep and the building is 11" wide and stands 14" high. The structure is thin plywood covered with vinyl sheet.
I feel that as it is the only one I know of it should be worth $150. All these items are available in Fallbrook but very difficult to ship.
My Phone is 760-213-0635 Hope to hear from you, Bob Baxter.
Aristo-Craft Heavyweight passenger car train.
As with all Aristo, this is 1:29 which matches Aristo and USA Trains scale, and works well with diesels or steam locos. This is the newer version of the Aristo cars, with the improved trucks. I have purchased another heavyweight set, so this is extra.
Cars in very good shape, look pretty much new, not left outside.
No longer available, these cars go for $200-$300 used on eBay.
I'd like to sell the entire set, and will go $150 each.
