    Welcome to the gauge, although I wish it were under better circumstances :(

    My Local Hbby Shop is:

    http://www.nstrains.com/pages/information.htm

    Click above & it will bring up the information, He is fair priced, but If you can -- go to as many Train Shops as you can. The Owner, Chris, will probably come out to you, if the collection isnt easily transportable :)

    Best of Luck, And My Condolences... Let us know how everything turns out. :)

    If there are European trains in there, (like the Hitler train) it may be harder to sell in an American oriented hobby shop.
    The Train Collectors association has its headquarters in Strasburg, Pa. They aren't dealers, but might know someone who is interested.
