|The picture shows all (21) Old Model Railroad Paper Items in this lot.|
All of these were found in an old two ring binder. Not all of these are dated, but the ones that have dates are from the 1940's. These are from different manufacturers, suppliers, and mail order companies. All of them pertain to toy model trains and layouts. Some are brochures, some are small catalogs, and others are letters and such. There are many 1940's pictures and prices on these. I will try to list a brief description of each below. Included in this lot are the following:
