The White Elephant
Tables at the
Great Scale Model Train Show
(Hint: This is HUGE)

"White elephants" are those items which are no longer useful to the one who owns them, but may be of great interest to one who is looking for those very things. Or even people who are merely curious.

At the Great Scale Model Train Show, there are many tables dedicated to the display of such items which may include everything from a sad little paper house to a rare brass engine of substantial value. You just never know, exactly. But what you DO know is that people who place their goods on the WET (White Elephant Tables) are usually well motivated to exchange what they have for cash. Expect great pricing!

The only restriction is that your goods must be railroad related.

IF YOU ARE A SELLER, with one or many items, the White Elephant Tables (WET) are most certainly a place to display your goods. If they sell, great! And if they don't, pick 'em up and try again later, here, or elsewhere. You only pay the show 15% if the item sells. If it does not, you pay nothing. Our White Elephant Tables are the perfect venue for folks who have just a few things. And if you are uncertain about pricing, ask us! We can help with that.

IF YOU ARE A BUYER, be aware that the merchandise on the WET is priced to sell. That's why it is displayed here. Expect bargains!

1. Gather up everything you want to put on the WET.
2. Note a brief description of each item or set of items (such as a set of passenger cars).
3. Note a price for each item or set.
4. Note any important details, such as a loco that runs (or doesn't run), missing parts, etc.
5. For fastest placement, fill out the table tickets in advance:
Send us a self-addressed envelope with first-class postage affixed. We'll send you as many table tickets as you request, up to 12. If you need more, contact us.

These are 2-part NCR forms; one copy stays with your goods, the other you keep as your receipt to receive payment or pick up your items later (don't lose it!)

Our address is as shown below.

(Otherwise, just bring your goods and complete the forms at the show).

6. Then bring everything with you to the show. WET is ready to receive your goods by 3 p.m. Friday, or as early as 7 a.m. Saturday. We do the work; you enjoy the show!
