Richard has an enormous HO train collection with hundreds of vintage railroad memorabilia items he collected over the past 50 plus years. For instance, well over 1,200 HO train cars (most with original boxes) including 100+ brass, about 60 vintage railroad lanterns, 50+ vintage hats (Conductor, Brakeman, Flag Man, Porter, etc.) 30 padlocks, brass railroad keys stamped with railroad company name, oil cans, 2 switches with solid cast iron bases (very heavy), railroad crossing sign, matchbooks, time tables, and on and on.

In addition, there will be railroad related artwork, railroad books, 1,000+ color photos & slides taken by Mr. Hoekstra going back to the 1960’s – 1970’s), lots of small hand tools & small power tools to work on HO train layouts or anyone that does crafts, hundreds of small train parts and lots of buildings & accessories for train layouts and so much more. This is a quality collection that you will want to admire and hopefully buy some to enjoy for yourself, family or friends. Again, the railroad collection will not be available to buy or view until late spring of 2022.
