Catalog cover

Dear Friends,

Railroad Memories is proud to present Auction 108 along with our printed catalog that features all lots photographed in color for the first time. Our catalogs have long been a welcome resource for collectors to add to their libraries so now in full color they are even more desirable. Should you wish to receive future issues you can subscribe for $60 a year which insures 4 issues plus a complete price realized list following the sale.

There are some wonderful additions in this auction from Jim Runneberg’s estate. Jim was from Iowa and a longtime client and friend who passed away in July 2019. He was a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor and like so many a passion for railroad collectibles. I know he is sorely missed by his family and many friends. I am honored to be able to showcase some of his pieces in this sale. I continue to be offering additional items from the estates of Greg Pinkham, Neil Shankweiler, Todd Kettwig and Warren Scholl.

As the fall season approaches and the end of 2020 years, I reflect on the challenges this year has brought to so many around the world. I remind myself daily how blessed I am to have my beautiful family, a new little grand daughter on the way and the importance of being kind to everyone. It is now more necessary than ever that we focus on those things that bring us happiness. We all share a love of the history of railroad collectibles and this hobby. I do hope this auction brings some joy and much needed distraction. And I thank everyone in advance for your continued support and participation.

Wishing everyone continued health and safety.
