  • September 6th, 2014 West Middlesex PA: Featured in this auction is a large portion of George Schmid’s Lionel MPC and Modern era collection (as well as a lot of other goodies), because as George states, I need more room for my postwar trains!" George started collecting trains in the late 1950’s, when his biggest purchase was a Lionel no. 2296W Canadian Pacific passenger outfit (which he still owns). Trains were always around the family home, and George "infected" his three children with the train bug. During the 1970’s and until today, George expanded his collection by purchasing new Lionel MPC and Modern era trains as well as MTH and others. He added 1,000’s of outfits, individual items, accessories, club cars, etc.

    In 2001, after the a purchase of postwar Lionel Factory Orders at auction, George sought to give back to the toy train collecting community as much as it has provided to him. Thus, instead of burying these documents in a basement, he helped to form Project Roar Publishing along with his son John, to publish and share this wonderful historical information. Project Roar Publishing has gone on to publish three award winning publications (Authoritative Guide to Lionel’s Postwar Operating Cars, Authoritative Guide to Lionel’s Promotional Outfits 1960-1969 and Inside The Lionel Trains Fun Factory) all of which George played a major role including co-editing.

    George needs more room for his postwar and paper collections and as such, has decided to part with this portion of his beautiful and mostly mint in box Lionel MPC, Lionel Modern era and MTH collection for others to enjoy as much as he has over the years.

  • November 22nd, 2014 West Middlesex, PA: Stout Auctions of West Middlesex, PA is honored to have been selected to sell the Frank Petruzzo train collection. Part I of the collection will be held on November 22, 2014 and Part II in January 2015. A printed color catalog will be available. Frank Petruzzo was a member of the TCA since 1972, a member of the Lionel Collectors Club of America, and an officer in the Midwest TCA Division. After assembling a quality collection of O gauge Lionel trains that was subsequently sold, Frank set his sights on Lionel Standard Gauge Pre War Trains and accessories. Driven to build a collection that would recreate a pre-war Lionel showroom, Frank relentlessly upgraded his Classic Period Standard Gauge collection, which eventually was quoted in the TMK Price Guide as being: " not just great. It might just be the greatest". Frank knew the importance of sharing knowledge with both current and future collectors. He was both gratuitous and grateful in sharing his collection in the Dec 1990 Classic Toy Trains Magazine, McComas and Tuohy's Classic Toy Train Layouts of America Video, Part VI, as well as other publications. Frank succumbed to heart disease and diabetes complications in 1994, but his memory lives on through his collection; the friendships he made; his dedication to the hobby; his commitment to variations, original condition and rarity; and his fascination with the quirky - for example, the famous "Petruzzo Coal Train". Frank's wife, Shirley, shared his passion and fittingly his entire collection has remained on display, intact and untouched for 20 years. It is now available to you -- the current and next generation of collectors -- in its entirety and exclusively through Stout Auctions. Frank always wondered, "what people do if they didn't have a hobby", so we thank you for your consideration as these pieces of history start a new journey.
