Books for sale

Jim King

I’m thinning the book collection as I continue to focus on specific modeling interests.  All are in good to fine condition with except of the oldest in the bunch:  B&O Power by Stauffer.  This has some “yellow dotting” that are minor but visible on some pages near the front and back covers.  Consider them “age spots”.  No mold or mildew, just spots.  My Dad bought this new in 1964.  All books come from a smoker-free environment.  All are hardbound unless noted.


Lots of freight cars photos from 1940s onward.
