- Oct 8, 2000I know, he's not cheap. I was able to get the Lake George Steam Boat book
from him a couple of years ago, but suffered for a while after. Glad I have
it now. Made a commitment several years ago about never passing up
something I "really" want. Some time in the early sixties I passed up a
tall Rutland amber globe in a bell bottom lamp because the guy wanted $15 at
a time when you could buy a NYWS&B for 3.50. Took me twenty years to find
another I could buy or trade for. AN antique dealer friend and a postcard
collector put it well to me one day when he was trying to sell me a high
priced btbb Boston and Albany lamp - we agreed that the true collector
learns to suffer for his hobby. He over looked the word "discriminating" so
I left it. It didn't really matter.
Even our wives can learn to suffer a bit going in, once they understand that
some of these railroad investments are more rewarding in the long term than
the market. Mediocrity however, will alway be mediocre.
