FANTASTIC MODERN ERA TRAIN AUCTION
Featured in this auction is a large portion of George Schmid?s Lionel MPC and Modern era collection (as well as a lot of other goodies), because as George states, ÒI need more room for my postwar trains!" George started collecting trains in the late 1950?s, when his biggest purchase was a Lionel no. 2296W Canadian Pacific passenger outfit (which he still owns). Trains were always around the family home, and George "infected" his three children with the train bug. During the 1970?s and until today, George expanded his collection by purchasing new Lionel MPC and Modern era trains as well as MTH and others. He added 1,000?s of outfits, individual items, accessories, club cars, etc. In 2001, after the a purchase of postwar Lionel Factory Orders at auction, George sought to give back to the toy train collecting community as much as it has provided to him. Thus, instead of burying these documents in a basement, he helped to form Project Roar Publishing along with his son John, to publish and share this wonderful historical information. Project Roar Publishing has gone on to publish three award winning publications (Authoritative Guide to Lionel?s Postwar Operating Cars, Authoritative Guide to Lionel?s Promotional Outfits 1960-1969 and Inside The Lionel Trains Fun Factory) all of which George played a major role including co-editing. George needs more room for his postwar and paper collections and as such, has decided to part with this portion of his beautiful and mostly mint in box Lionel MPC, Lionel Modern era and MTH collection for others to enjoy as much as he has over the years. The last portion of the sale will include Lionel postwar, Marx and scale trolleys. For more information on our Pennsylvania events please call 724-528-1500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
