Hello,

Besides modeling traction in half inch scale, I collect postcards showing streetcars. 

In almost thirty years of collecting, I have never met anyone else who does this too. 

There must be others, as I see postcards on E-bay offered. 

Anyone here collect? 

I have hundreds of duplicate cards I'd love to trade. 

Please contact me if you are a fellow collector. 

Thanks! 

Regards, Dave L.

Dave,

I'm by no means a collector of postcards but I have picked up a few postcards of the Virginia & Truckee. 

I'm more into narrow gauge and really haven't seen much postcards except for the D&RGW.

Thanks, a lot of postcards show up at train shows or in antique malls, but never any cards showing trolleys.

It is strange that there are many trolley cards offered on E-bay, some going for quite an amount.

Regards, Dave L.

Dave,

I'll have to pay more attention to the collectables tables at the next train show and see what I can find.

I've always had a thing for the Pacific Electric, and even had a small HO trolley layout with operating overhead many many years ago. 

I have quite a few books on the PE stashed away. 

The OERM in Perris has a very nice collections of electrics.

Thanks,

I've been modeling trolleys since I was in Jr. High School in N, HO, and lately large scale (1/2" scale). 

My main interest is the local transit system that operated in Hershey, PA.

Some of my models of their cars are in the Hershey Historical Society. 

I was always going to build that large trolley system running on live overhead, but Gn15 sidetracked me. 

Regards, Dave L.
