Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$44   

Varney was one of the most known names in early HO model railroading. Gordon Varney was visionary in early business years. When HO was just gaining in popularity in the late 1930s, Varney sold all of his successful 'O' gauge moldings and casting to concentrate exclusively on HO gauge. Judging from the style of kit, this one is from the 1950s. Features all metal main parts that are factory painted and lettered; metal and plastic details, metal truck set and more. The kit has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present. The car sides and end are in 'excellent+' condition. Never started.

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$32   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all small parts still factory sealed, the larger ones inventoried complete with instructions.

Cleveland Outside Braced Automobile Car - Rock Island - (Box Car) - Wooden Model, 1/64

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$32   

Very rare and dated 1937. Cleveland had their own extensive line of model railroad kits in the 1930s. They were excellent models but Mr. Packard chose the nonstandard 1/64 as the scale. I had seen Cleveland trains in the catalogs but this is first one I have found in 24 years of looking. Inside, it is a kit of typical high Cleveland quality. Features highly detailed plans with numerous drawings and text instructions, full color litho wrap for the car sides, roof and ends, a factory sealed bag of C-D Trucks, a factory sealed envelope of small parts, high-quality, factory cut hardwood roof (to the correct shape), floor, ends and other parts, wood and metal stock as required and more. Never started. The small parts and trucks are still factory sealed. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including all paperwork. Please NOTE: there is a rough tear in the color wrap but it is complete.

Minicraft 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 11102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$42   

From ex-Entex molds. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from 1996 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detailed and molded in wood brown, medium gray and black. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the metal parts have been inventoried and NOTE: missing one (round) shaft. Easily made from round stock. Includes instructions.
