Strange Ebay Find

Recommended Posts

I found someone selling an R30 sign with the white routes, T U X,

 

Disclaimer: I am NOT the person selling it, I dont know this person, im just posting it up as an example http://cgi.ebay.com/NYC-NEW-YORK-SUBWAY-NY-R30-ROLL-SIGN-42-X14-T-U-X-1988-/400214019088?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d2e9d4c10

 

did the R30 front sign actually have these routes on them?

It's the same guy that sells his stuff at high prices. :tdown:

 

well i know his prices suck, im not saying buy from him, but he does offer things that are unsual, like that R30 sign he cut up that has all the 'white line' routes from the R32 roll. The thing im wondering is did R30s have those rollsigns since I have a photo of another rollsign readout that matches the R40-42 order of routes. and then theres the early 80s one with it in alphabetical order wiht the <C>

Yes, all the R30-38 cars that lasted into the late 80's GOH program got the same signs (with the routes grouped by location rather than alphabet), and they had the five white routes at the end. (The 40-46 signs didn't have those, though the rest of the lines were in a similar order).

It's a shame he's cutting up one of those signs, there were not alot of them. But if that guy can charge $50 a eading for an R40 end sign, I wonder what I could sell a whole sign for.

That gut does not deserve the stuff he has. You don't sit there and cut up a damn piece of history.

If that were only $10, I'd buy it. It's the initials of the Grantville Railway System B)
