    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 2015, date to be announced. A printed color is 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. Please contact us by phone 724-528-1500 or email katy@stoutauctions.com. To see a wonderful video of Frank and his collection, play the Youtube video below.
