Dear Friends,

I am excited to be able to open this my 105th sale with over 500 lots of quality railroad memorabilia just needing a new place to call home. I continue to showcase many wonderful items from Mr. Neil Shankweiler’s estate including items to found in builders’ plates, china, lanterns and of course passes as well. Neil really had amassed a very impressive collection and I have been honored to assist in finding new homes for his valued treasures.

It is hard to believe that Fall is fast approaching and with that will come many more impressive items to be auctioned in the near future. Please remember that I did change the final bidding window from 10 minutes to 5 minutes so keep that in mind. And remember it is always best to “Verify” your registration prior to bidding. Don’t wait until the last few minutes to do this. The easiest way would be to at least put the minimum required bid on the items you are interested in. That way you can easily log in and find your summary at your fingertips. Makes bidding a lot less stressful.

Should you have questions or require more photographs please let me know, as I am only happy to be of assistance. As always I want to thank you for you continued participation and fingers crossed, you will find and hopefully acquire some treasures for you own collection.

Kindest regards And good luck bidding
