May 1, 2023.....


Well, we finally made it back after 2 weeks in NJ.  It was 90%  work and 10% pizza and Wawa.  We loaded 14,000 lbs of stuff on to a tractor trailer by hand.  Not a whole lot of trains, just a whole lot of stuff, and a LOT of Lionel parts from pre-1985 or so.  Not that im going to get into selling Lionel parts again...its was all just sitting in NJ, and we had to get it out of there.  The trailer will probably get here this week, and it will take another 2-3 days to unload it.

Luckily the fires arent that close. Temps have been in the 100's for over a week now, and internet and phone service has been up and down, but the A/C hasnt quit, so we are doing OK. Seems a few more people are taking the Covid seriously now, and new cases are diminishing slightly...and Hollywood is beginning to film next week Im going back down to LA for the 1st time since March.

Not so much in MTH passenger cars, as they are 80' cars kinda squeezed down to 70' .....but there are about 20 sets of NOS mth passenger sets here.

Lionel remakes of the Weaver B60 baggage cars are here, and a lot of the ex-Weaver cars, now Lionel "Lionelscale".

Also have Weaver diecast sprung trucks. available separately now.Also, we have the Lionel B60's available in 2 rail, which Lionel doesnt offer.Have been digging thru a stockpile of MTH freight cars, and getting more up on the web for sale. Some date back to 1996. After I finish up the MTH premier 50' box cars and cabooses, and misc cars, I'll start in on the pile of Lionel scale cars thats here. Maybe a hundred cars, all full scale. We do have the new GLa hoppers up for sale now. Then there's still Lionel engines from the 2000-2010 range, and a LOT of k-line that maybe i'll get around to before im dead. haha.Will continue to put more MTH buildings up on the web, and going to start in with signals, lamps, accessories.

Troop sleepers are back in stock, Ex-weaver pullman-bradley coaches are here, new 50' box cars, tank cars, cant remember what else.Golden Gate...heavyweight diners, obs cars, baggage cars, and rpo's should be here in march. Bought out the remaining stock of 70' (harriman style) cars, so they are here.Have been getting a lot of new customers recently, and people asking "do you have this in stock?" Especially from 2 railers, who cant believe we have 2 rail. (I think we are one of the top 5 Atlas/MTH/Golden Gate/Weaver 2 rail dealers)Just so everyone knows...we keep the website up to date, and it is 98% accurate.I'll try to update this at least once a month now...... beth

If u dont want to pay with paypal, just call us at 805-226-0320.Golden Gate depot...Have a number of Harriman passenger cars in stock. New stuff....working on another run of heavyweight Baggage, baggage/mail, diner, and observation cars. Because short runs of these cars can be done, and keep the price down, we've listed 24+ road names. Final production will depend on what is received in pre-orders. Target is to have the cars in stock within a year...none of this 3 year wait stuff. We do still have some of the heavyweight cars from previous runs in stock, which are listed in the website. We still have some aluminum passenger cars in stock, but the pile is getting thin.MTH....Have been picking up some of their closeout stuff, and getting if up on the website. Quite a few diesels and some steam engines. Lots of MTH freight cars here...trying to get them up on the time permits.Lionel....Have the ex-Weaver items (Lion Scale) up for sale and pre-order. All cars are available individually..You dont have to buy 6 car sets. Also have about 200 Lionel Scale freight cars here...we will get them up for sale..hopefully within a month or two.
Oct 27th..... Atlas (former weaver) B&O wagontop box car and 50' composite gondolas are on their way from Atlas. Also Atlas 40' Steel rebuilt box cars and 50' PS-1 box cars. I'll sending out invoices this weekend. If you have some on order and want to pay with a CC, you can always call us 805-226-0320. LIONEL scale cars and LionScale (former Weaver cars.) Since we had been Weaver Dealers forever, we decided to carry a limited amount of the Lionel LionScale freight cars, for now, which are former Weaver freight cars. We'll see how the interest is. We are trying to keep the price about the same as the original weaver cars, with diecast trucks. The cars in the 2017 Lionel Signature catalog will be listed for pre-order as soon as I have a chance. We will also carry some of the other cars..the 50' TOFC's ....and maybe the B60's....The price of the B60's from Lionel is higher than what we sell the Weaver B60's for. We probably have about 60 of the Weaver B60's left...and as far as I can see....the Lionel ones are no different. We may pick up a few to see if there is any interest at the Lionel price. Also have about 200 Lionel Scale cars here...that have been accumulating over the years. So we will start listing them as time permits. Also a couple dozen Lionel scale engines. But they will be last.UPCOMING AND NEW SPECIAL RUNS.....We have 2 new Flying A gasoline Atlas 8000 gallon tank cars scheduled for end of 2017 arrival. Both the earlier version (small flying A in a circle) and the later version (larger flying A). The earlier version will have the original "ASSOCIATED" name and AOX reporting marks (Yes the "Flying A" was for Associated Oil Company of Bakesrfield, Ca) , and the later logo car with have the TIDEWATER name and TWOX reporting marks. (Tide Water started in New York City) Tidewater bought Associated and retained the Flying A brand. The merged company was officially The Tidewater Associated Oil Company well into the 1950's. The company had tank cars with both the AOX and TWOX reporting marks, into the 1950's. At least 2 of the AOX tank cars and one of the TWOX remain in musuems/tourist line today.Also we are scheduling the GATX plain old black 11,000 gallon tank car.

If you pre-ordered and have not received your cars, please email us at We do have extras, so we can still take care of anyone whose order was lost in the cracks.Atlas O California Zephyr Dome observation cars and 6-5 sleepers Golden Gate "Finish" sets (4 car sets)Now shipping: Atlas O: Morristown and Erie Box cars, Susquehanna Box cars, Nevada Northern Hopper cars, PS4750s, 40' sliding door box cars. Shipping later this month: Golden Gate Modernized heavyweight coaches.Weaver Models closing.....The weaver models closing was very sudden and quick. Announcement to shutdown was 2 weeks, with another 2 weeks alloted to shipping outstanding orders. We had to scramble to get what we could. We did manage to get the remainder of the MILW ribbed side box cars, the 40' wood side gondolas, 40' tank cars, PRR/PC/CR H30 covered hopper cars, tropicana 57' reefers, and a smattering of other stuff.NOTE: Since the Weaver trucks/couplers and car bodies were manufactured separately, the trucks were added to the cars as ordered. In the end, there were 1000+ more car bodies remaining than trucks/couplers. If you have Weaver trucks and couplers, metal or plastic, just letting u know that they will be in short supply. Especially the diecast ones. We would like to get another 1000 pair ourselves, but its just not possible right now. I guess we'll see what happens.....
