The Fox Valley Division has accumulated a quantity of donated rail hobby items generally from estates of past modelers. We are making the used equipment available to current and future modelers. All equipment is free on a first come - first served basis - with a promise that it will put to use and not be resold. Quantities will be reasonably limited to each individual in order to spread the equipment. The inventory includes HO and O-scale locomotives, passenger cars, freight car (RTR and kits), buildings (RTR and kits), Lionel and other O-scale. There are 3 N-scale bridges. American Flyer, S-Scale, Sn3 locos and cars. There is 1, G-scale 4 wheel CBQ switcher, two turnouts and 1 box of G scale track. 50 items of Railroadiana and over 60 books.

Some miscellaneous items are photos, prints and paintings (framed and un-framed), timetables, matchbooks, misc. paper, memorabilia, DVD’s, videos, RR-logo’d items, etc. Other items include loco’s (powered and dummies), passenger and freight cars, kits and built-up, bridges (various scales and lengths and constructions), bundles of track (gauges vary), roadbed, flex-track of various gauges; structures (kit and built up), power packs, vehicles, RR-themed items.

We make no representation of operability or quality of any of this equipment other than it can be put to use by a hobbyist. Some equipment may require a little "TLC" which is the fun part of the hobby.

Location of the equipment distribution is:
2013 W Grove Ave, Waukegan, IL 60085
1 pm - 4 pm April 24, 2021.
