All found today at the Edison New Jersey train show today. And each for under $5.


Sorry guys having trouble adding pictures, pictures will follow soon

The Gold Camaro and Alfa[?] were $1 each [anyone know the manufacturer]?
The Majorette was $5; a trade up from my current one
The on card Zylmex was $3!!! [most proud of that]!
The JL was also $3

I bought a bunch of new MBX, M@, and GL but these are the more interesting finds!

Take your pics big, Crop them to size, as you did.
If you are using Windows, open them in Paint. Click on "Resize", change to from percentage to Pixels.

Type in 800 (or thereabouts) on the larger of the 2 numbers, the other will change to keep things proportional to each other.
Pic will get smaller on your screen, hit the Save button.
Your pic will be much smaller in file size, but will still look good on screens here.

This pic started out super large, about 2 Meg big.. Cropped it down so it looked good.
Ran the result througn Paint as above, changed pixel size from 1339x622, to 800x372. Now size is 86.3 KB. And it just has to go below 200 KB.

nice finds for a train show...at times when one of them is changing their layout you can pick up some
good stuff for reasonable prices.

:wave: The other thing about trains shows - there are a lot of older train guys who are getting out of the hobby as they move to smaller homes or apartments and in some cases assisted living/nursing homes and need to downsize or even get rid of their trains and stuff.
