Auction of O-scale EBT models

Longtime FEBT member Douglas C. Taylor, noted for modeling the East Broad Top Railroad in HO scale, has generously donated a large collection of O-scale EBT models to Friends of the East Broad Top. These models will be sold at auction during our 2009 fall reunion. The auction will be held in the Orbisonia Lions Hall, starting at 8:30 pm, on Saturday, October 10. Proceeds from the sale of Doug’s models will be used to support the FEBT restoration program.

The auction is open to the public. To participate in the auction, however, all potential bidders must register before the start of the auction. Persons who have registered for the 2009 FEBT fall reunion are automatically registered to participate in the auction.

Information about the models and other items to be sold can be found in the list below. All ready-to-run models and models assembled from kits have been displayed or test run only. Items to be sold will be available for inspection in the Orbisonia Lions Hall on Saturday afternoon and again briefly before the auction. Note that some items may be combined or separated to form lots to be sold at the auction. Reserve prices will be set for some items, and if the bid price does not exceed the reserve price FEBT will retain the item for future sale in a different venue.

Payment for all sales must be completed at the conclusion of the auction. Payment may be made by cash, certified bank check, travelers check, money order, or personal check (with appropriate identification incorporating photo ID).

Updated information about the auction will be posted on the FEBT web site as we get closer to October 10.

All models are O scale (¼ inch = 1 foot); all models of East Broad Top Railroad (EBT) narrow-gauge equipment are On3.
