Linda will be selling model railroad items in the Percival House basement during the work weekend. All the proceeds will be going into the archives fund.

Finely the four boxes of donated model trains were sent off for bulk sale. The proceeds will go to the archives fund. Linda was repeatedly perseverant in order to make this happen.

The vast majority is HO. Some other samplings from other gauges.

Stewart posted a few photos on Facebook:

I snapped a few myself so to give everyone an idea of the sort of stuff that will be available.

In short, 99% of it is HO. There is a little bit of large scale (G, etc.) stuff and a smattering of O gauge (mostly buildings.) I spied one N-gauge car on my way out the door.

There is also a lot of books, photos, slides, etc. And some spare scale drawings.

And sales may be with cash or credit cards since Linda will be using the Gift Shop digital sales system.

What about those of us who will be leaving early for FWW duties?  Perhaps a pre-opening for the worker bees?

Any pre-sales would have to be negotiated with Linda.

The diligent efforts of Linda and myself to get the four boxes of model trains off to Hattons Model Railways in England as paid off.  As promised, they sent me £1.532 Pounds British Stirling.  That exchanged to $1,734.90 US Dollars.  Today I am sending said amount off to Alna to be deposited into the Archive Account.  I know Linda will use that donation to find some terrific additions for our Archives collection.
