There really cool but is it worth spending over $1.50 a picture? But still cool, its sad that all these treasures are being sold for pennies on the dollar after all these years !

Sounds like this could be worth quiet a bit if you think about it. Many times when things like this go to private collectors, they are never found again.

they'd be a great addition to the ugm wanamie page.

i'd be interested in acquiring this collection. is anyone on here going to get into a bidding war with me? i'd like to avoid that.

if anyone is interested i have dozens of pics of the local (wilkes barre, scranton, and laurel line) trolleys, plus i have conductor badges, tickets, maps etc. Im not selling them but i was going to start a web site devoted to these lines at one time. I dont know if that will ever happen so instead i can share these if there is any interest and if i ever get arround to scanning them

i was going to toss my hat into the ring but Ive been dumping $$ into the 66 Dodge, gotta make it a little faster than last year, so my automotive hobby (addiction) got in the way oh well summers here and the time is right for racin in the street .....actually im looking for a 1948-1954 chevy or 1948-1956 ford pickup because the next one im building is going to be a hot rod Blue Coal replica truck, with proper patina, weathered paint, etc, mabee use an old carbide lamp or steg tap for a shift knob on a lowered s-10 frame, (i guess i should hone my welding skills) gotta look a little gnarly and beat up for proper "evil" this way I can combine both hobbys, you know what, I think i know where there might be a blue and black 50 chevy pickup sitting.....hmmmmmm
