Anyone who lives in the Seattle area, specifically around Shelton or Bremerton and needs some buildings, I have a large number of buildings I am trying to get rid of.

I have staions, water towers, coaling tower, sand house, grain elebator and associated buildings, many other piko buildings. I have CSM mine building, several industrial buildings. I have farm houses, small stores.

Many are in good to excellent shape. Some need windows or trim pieces replaced.

They are all available at bargain basement prices -- I will accept almost anything for them. They are just cluttering up my garage right now. I no longer am doing Large scale.

If interested, contact me at 360-490-5637 or [email protected].

I do not know how to post pictures, but I can email them to you if you are interested.

No reasonable or unreasonable offer will be turned down. You will probably have to come to pictt them up.

Two and a half days and no one interested? Am I going to have to make the drive from Western New York? Yes, I drove Route 66 back in 2009 and visited Mt. Rushmore on the way back (6321 mile trip) and gas is back to 2009 prices, but.... But it would be a tragedy to let so many buildings go to waste. Somebody please stop me before I drive again.

Yes, you would think there would be someone in the Seattle/Olympia/Tacoma/Shelton area who might at least want to take a look at what I have.

I also have about 25 Aristo Wide Radius turnouts and a bunch of track, mostly in good condition.

It doesn't hurt to take a look -- you might be surprised at what you might find.

I have a bunch of scratchbuilding materials, Grant Line windows, doors, etc.

A bunch of Kadee couplers,

Some miscellaneous things also.

My address is: 91 E Jade Drive, Shelton Wa 98584

Okay, I guess some of you think this might be a joke so here is a partial list of what I have availabe:

Piko 62009 Gravel works catalog price 1180 Very good condition
Piko 62010 Side Building Price 80 Very good condition
Piko 62013 Brewery side Bldg 50 Good mainly for scratchbuilding materials
Piko 62014 Brewery Main bldg 170 Scratchbuilding materials
Piko 62017 Boiler House 70 Scratchbuilding materials
62034 Coop Warehouse 150 Excellent condition
Coop Main Building 180 Excellent condition
62064- 62070 and similar buildings. 55-65 most in fair to poor condition (probably 5-10 dollars each
62110 Ban 150 Fair condition. Needs glue and a couple of windows replaced
62210 Gri Grande Water tower 130 Excellent condition
62221 Aunt Beas Farmouse 130 Excellent condition
Coaling Tower (cannot find a listing for it anymore0 Excellent condition

Several other small buildings I call them miners cabins excellent condition

I Have about 25 Bachmann freight cars 1:22 scale in good to excellent condition;

I have about 6-7 1:20 spectrum bachmann freight cars in perfect condition.

The Colorado scale model buildings alneed some work but still could be fixed up with very little work.

And I have at least 25 Aristo WSide radius switches 332 codee in good condition.

Sounds like an opportunity for someone to make a good deal

And I am not trying to get rich.

Well John,

For one you didn't put "For Sale" in the title.

I only read your original post because I thought there was some comment/question about the scale of the Piko buildings.

And since you are a 1st Class member, why don't you post in the mls classified section?

I'm nowhere near Seattle otherwise I would definitely drop in

Thanks for the help.

Please move it if you can.

The rolling stock is priced at 25 per car plus shipping. Most have been moderately weathered but they are in pretty good shape. All have kadee body mounted couplers and metal wheels.

I just measured some of the buildings and they are very large. I have no idea what it would cost to ship them, that is why I would prefer someone in the local area to reply.

However, it seems like there are no large scale modelers in the Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Shelton area -- at least no one who needs some really nice buildings at a very reasonable price for their layout.

Some of the buildings will go for 5-10 dollars each.

The Aristo turnouts I think are worth at least 30 dollars each plus shipping.

I have not measured how much track I have left.

Several months ago I sent a large amount of engines and track to Silver State Trains in Nevada.

John,
I know a couple people in Tacoma that might be interested. I e-mailed your info to them. I might also be interested in buildings. You are only a short drive away.

Sold some items at very good prices for those who bought.

Still have quite a few buildings left, about 15 freight cars, box, gondola, stocks with kadee couplers and metal wheels

Still some scratch building materials including Piko wall panels in clapboard and brick, windows, doors, Piko roofs, large smoke stack, and quite a few other items.

Would prefer to sell them locally in the Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia area to avoid shipping which I do not really know how to do, but if you are interested, I could send pictures VIA Email.

I bought some of John's tank cars and other than adjusting coupler height they are in Great shape and pull very nice. He will treat you well.

What Spectrum cars do you have and are you willing to ship to CA? I'm very interested! (wish I could get the buildings as well but shipping for them isn't really an option)

Please email me at [email protected]
