I am sorry for multiple posts. I modeled the Gilpin in On2 for a long time, starting with a converted USHobbies Shay. I also was building in Hon3 with a group of fellow Dutch modelers. We have built two Hon3 layouts, that were both featured in the Gazette and several European model railroad magazines.
Later I bought a Gilpin Shay and tore down my On2/On3 12' x 12' layout because several members of the group changed scales and we started a group layout in On3/On2 consisting of 12 sections of 8'x 4'. The group broke up a few years ago and I sold several items to the only other Gilpin modeler in my country, who is now deceased, and I stored what remained.
I am now building a small On3 South park layout and have no room in our appartment for the Gilpin. So sadly enough I have to sell the stuff or throw it in the garbage bin.
This is the list of items. If it is OK with the moderator I will make an album with photos, called Gilpin Daniel for sale. The prices are what I paid, though some are real estimated prices.
I prefer to sell the whole lot for a reasonable offer but am willing to sell things individually. Postage will probably be around $ 50,-- for the whole lot. Your reactions please not to the list but to d.van.aggelen@...
