:bg:Happy Holidays to all of the freerailers out there.

In an effort to add some storage space in my shop, I decided that I needed to get rid of some of my magazine collections. In the late 80's a magazine was put out by Bill N. Roy called "TIMBERBEAST". It was a quarterly that was fabulous for anyone interested in the subject. Anyway I have what is or might be a complete collection of them. The question is has anyone heard of them and what they might be worth. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

yup, have heard of them, never seen one, but i do talk to bill roy out in oregon once or more a year when i am buying one of his products he sells. No website.  Name of his products is McKenzie Iron and steel.

Anyway, yes there is some value in them.........and to sell them go to ebay USA and sell them there. make sure you have O scale, On30, On3 in title and description of ad.  Just start them off at $1.00 each and sell to highest bidder and fair market value will easily be found.

madmike3434....who spends ways to much time searching ebay

did i mention to offer each issue individually so that people needing to find one missing copy will be drawn into it.

Also space the SCHEDULE starting time of each auction 5 minutes apart, preferably starting on a sunday nite around 7 Pm eastern standard time.  

Volumn #1 issue #1 of coarse is always much more valuable than the newest.

Yea, I have a few of them and the fact that Bill does not even have a full set. The ones he has he has been selling for I think 5 each at least thats what I gave for the few I have. Wish I had more.

MadMike Thanks for the info, greatly appreciated. Have never done anyhting on EBay, so this will be an adventure. Most of the comments I had gotten when talking about the mag were, what is it. I guess I just haven't hit the right market. I really like the idea about On30 and On3. My opinion is that the are about as obscure as finding good Simpson plans. Thanks again.

Altho Russ Simpson has recently passed away late 2008, nobody is sure if his widow will continue offering items ?

Russ was most active in the WSLC yahoo group ( west side lumber company ) and most of his drawings and plans would best be sought out in wanted posts in that group.

I have seen russ simpson plans for sale on ebay in the On3 section under toys and hobbies, model railroad .  when your looking for some thing like that its best to check ebay every day. Search using NEWEST listed ITEMS on the right upper.   That way you only start looking for the newest listings.

Type the name russ simpson into ebay search should alway bring up something if there is something for sale......?

He made a kit for a wslc block car i always thought was neat, 3 door and 4 door version. Produced the WSLC reynolds camp cook house in hydrocal and am currently making a personel model of it stretched to 2 x's the stock length too 76 foot.

IMHO its always about having the right KEYWORDS in the ebay advert and in the right section. There is a market out there for what you have and i personally think you might obtain the maximum return by selling each one under auction individually , rather than offering a complete collection. Its a case of flip the quarter to decide.

Also offer combined shipping for multiple wins.

  One of the things that I thought was great was his plans for the WSLC pile driver. I do have plans for that and am in the process of scratch building one in HO scale for a friend who is freelancing in HOn3. I do have about twenty of his car kits. Two of them are the block cars. When I get the HO scale pile driver done I would like to build it again for my On30 layout. So many kits, so little time to do all of the great ones out there
