HAPPY THANKSGIVING

As we come to this Thanksgiving and Christmas season, let us not forget to thank those who spend countless hours in service to the people of this great country. From Service men and women all over the globe, to the local church volunteers feeding the hungry. This time of year isn't about the stuff we buy, its about the friendships and relations we make with each other that bring us together as a community and as a nation.

This year we here at Pacific Railroad Antiques are thankful for people who serve others. We're also thankful for you as our customers, friends, and new acquaintances. And we're thankful to be able to continue to share this great hobby with all of you. As you enjoy these new updates across the site please take a minute to think about the people in and around your life that make you thankful, and take a minute to let them know.

RAIN DELAY

A rainy weekend in the Pacific Northwest gives us the opportunity to make some long awaited updates to the website. The additions you'll enjoy this time include some nice lanterns and lamps as well as a few rare builders plates and some great keys coming. And as usual, we're out and about looking for more great treasures that are ready to transition to their next caretakers. We really value your continued support and look forward to many more years Lord willing.

If you're in the Pacific Northwest, please make it a point to stop by and see us on November 14th at the Kent Commons in Kent, WA. The Boeing Employees put on a great show as they have for the past 35 years! See their website at www.bemrrc.com for more information. Hope to see you there!

Also look for more items to be added from the James Fredrickson collection. There will be some rare and spectacular early centruy original matted photos, one of the largest collections around. So stay tuned!

SEPTEMBER IS HERE

Where has the summer gone? Well, we hope you have enjoyed it! Its difficult to juggle so many things, family, hobbies, work... Yes we have full time jobs outside of this hobby we are passionate about so time runs short during the summer. But we're working on a major update. As many of you know we have been asked to handle several large railroad collectibles estates and are in the process of trying to process and catalog everything and keep it all straight while finding room to house things in an organized manner. We'll be posting some of these offerings starting in the next couple weeks with hopefully regular updates now that it is 'back to school' time.

On the subject of estates, we would strongly advise you collectors to have a plan in place for your entire collection. None of us will live forever, so planning now will help your family avoid the various "Cherry Picking" auction houses and collectors that over promise and under deliver leaving your family with less than expected while having to deal with the items you found precious, but they did not.

Talk to us about our collection estate managment services. We manage the entire collection and realize top prices while honoring your pre-planned directives on those special pieces.
