Older N scale query
Author: Jeff_Johnston

A question for you N scale guys. First, my disclaimer: I'm an HO scale guy, know nothing of N scale hardware or history.

A friend ran across this material while doing some closet cleaning. It apparently dates back to the 70s or '80s, he wasn't sure, but the diesel says Trix on its underside. I know that brand is still sold and might have a following for older hardware.

In short, is this worth posting online for sale, or is it Goodwill material?

Thank you!

In "ye days of olde" Trix was considered to be one of the better N Scale brands. Of course, technology has come a long way. Some years back I managed to sell off some Trix (and Kadee) items that I had acquired in the mid-70's before going back to HO Scale. Look around on that auction site for pricing ideas.

Back in the bad old days of N gauge Trix locomotives were very good runners, the F7A, U28C and the U30CG

I had that Santa Fe F7. I bought it at a hobby shop in Syracuse when I was seven. Well, I say I bought it - my mother bought it for me while my father was in another store. It was my first step to modelling in N scale, which I only wanted to do because of the Bachmann N scale TurboTrain.

My father was so annoyed. We already had an HO layout. That was my first and last N scale purchase until I started manufacturing N scale... :-D
