    I have a bunch of the plain road bed, but it is heavy as all get out. I have been selling it a local shows for 25 cents a stick.

        Bob Might that be plain roadbed, no ties and no paint? I might be interested as I have built track using jigs but need road bed. Your turn, Darryl

                You can fit a lot of them in a large (12x24x3) priority box so shipping would be under 20 bucks

                  Darryl - I have 143 full piece of plain roadbed plus 4 shorter pieces. They come to a package 36"x12"x12". Well, that is what they are in now. Basically two copy paper boxes end to end that I have been carrying to shows. Not all all useful for shipment. I'll sell them for $30 plus shipping. I contacted UPS and it looks like it'll be about $87 to ship (includes box). So how about $120 shipped out?

                  If still interested send me particulars.

                      Bob I had a very interesting morning as one of my friends that is a carpenter. He said if I supplied the wood, he would only cut the straight sections. Since the roadbed is 5/16 thick and the width is 1 7/8 and the bevel is easy to do, I'll have to see how that goes for now. I have to pass on straight sections that are not milled with ties. Thanks for your help. CHEERS Darryl

                          Darryl -- Do you need any more of this stuff? I have a bunch packed away including turnouts, crossovers, curved sections mostly 28" radii and above, all milled with ties. -- Let me know and I will dig it out. -- BobR.

                            Well, I finally received enough to do my remodel project but along the way I had to buy other unwanted items to get what I needed. Now I will sell or trade the excess and that includes some brass or nickel silver crossings, switches and a bunch of various curved pieces. I'm reasonable and not make you buy unwanted items like I had too... List not available as I am peddling many engines and freight in On30. One can acquire too much....
