I'll just drop this here. I am not in any way associated with the seller, but several people on Facebook claim to know him and confirm that this is a legitimate listing. Let's hope they can find a good home for these junkers.

I have been told by someone deep in the trolley preservation network that these cars are already legally in the possession of a scrapper "just down the street," but that said scrapper is wiling to "wheel and deal" for various parts (trucks, M-G sets, etc.),and that some parties are already at work haggling.

I trust my source more than Craigslist ads--especially as he's looking for some of the parts.

If someone has a serious need, PM/e-mail me and I'll go through my contacts and get a name.

Be prepared to tell me what you want/need and how much you're offering. That kind of tells me how serious you are.

(My contacts reserve the right to be ahead of you in line.)
