Part of Ward Kimball's collection is getting auctioned off on November 20th. The above is the eBay link. Just a couple of thoughts:
1) Ward's collection was probably one of the nicest I have ever seen.
2) The prices are going to be blindingly high.
3) This is one collection that I would rather not have seen auctioned. I'd rather have Ward back. The trains seemed to congregate around a great man. This guy made the world better, his collection was a reflection of decent, creative and diverse human being.
I know they are just trains but they kind of make me miss him.
