No not until I'm dead. Then they go on the market. Watch E-bay.

Ok, Stumps63,

In a PM, you asked what are they. Here's what I have at the moment.

Factory painted EBT 2-6-6

Factory painted EBT M-1 Motor Car

Brass 4-4-0

Brass Michigan-California Shay

Brass 2-8-2

Model Diecasting (Roundhouse) 2-8-0

I have a couple of more Model Diecast engines and a couple of Grant Line Box Cabs.

I have a couple of brass HOn3 locos that now run smoothly. However, they required some work by a friend who loves doing that. One was re-motored. The diesel HOn3 brass that I have are noisy, but run pretty good.

You can hear how two of them sound in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aigsH2PONI&feature=youtu.be

The Blackstone locomotives are really nice runners and most come DCC equipped

I have a number of brass engines both steam and diesel. All the steamers run pretty good. The more expensive the brass steam engine the better they run. You can always put in the newer motors of today.

The diesels are another story. The ones I have don't run to bad. They are noisy due to their drives. Gears will be noisy, especially metal spur gears.

Since you are looking at HOn3 I do have a couple of steam engines. They run pretty good. I don't have any experience with the newer models on the market.
