Today we were doing an NTRAK display at the local public library and a gentleman came in and handed me 3 boxes. He said his mother had recently passed away and he had found them in her belongings. Each has a piece of tape on the lid saying "antique railroad car kit". On the end is a label that reads "Athearn's O guage car kit" with an address underneath. The kit's have all been opened, but appear complete. I opened one and it contained some wood and a steel roof in a neat wrapped bundle. In another wrapper were 2 metal sides for a NYC boxcar. 2 brass doors and 2 brass end panels were in the bottom of the box along with a bunch of detail parts. No trucks. What do I have? Are these actually antique kits, and what sort of value do they have? He wanted them to go to someone who would use them and I told him I would find them a good home. My thought is to treat this as a "donation" to the club and put any money I can get into the club kitty (we're a very small club and every little bit helps) so that the kits find a good home and the club gets some benefit as well.
