In my winter downtime I have been running my HO trains - I collect only Varney - anyone have any for sale?? Its a warm respite from my model T's firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't have any ,but Varney kits were the only thing I could afford back in the 40s when I was playing with model trains.
I think I got this setup for Christmas in 1968-9 ?
The rest is in a big box by varney and 3 cars in other boxes.
Run 1 time and has been stored every since unused.
The pot metal "cylinders" are swelling on the engine here.
is it for sale Mack?
Bob, the kits are still available on e-bay, but shipping makes them next to impossible to buy at a good price. I used to buy the kits in the 60's for a couple of bucks each at a place called hobby hub in Lansing Michigan. I loved buying them! They were good quality at a low price. Those days are gone!
Hadnt thought about it really.I dont need it,but it is just something from my childhood.
Wouldnt have a clue as to what it would be worth anyway.
