Ebay for the most part, that way I can get all the hard to find models from Germany, japan, Uk, all over the world! I also get them at the equipment dealers and some other online sites.

That's my doing, that room hardly ever has the door open, and being so small of an interior space (7 x 10 feet) dust is a rare thing to have, other than our damn cat's hair on it.

Wish I had money left over to collect anything.......I leave the equipment outside and collect other stuff like butterflies, old oil cans, art glass like stubens/quezels/tiffany. Now the only things I seem to collect are more bills......

On average probably around a $100.00

Some I've bought for $30-40.00, while others have cost $400.00

Ain't nothing better than to see a trio of unpainted SD40-2's with the old "pac-man" paint scheme rolling through the Rockies.

Here's what they look like above the rest of the layout:

What was your other one that you couldn't find?Thanks for shaing!

The watchfobs you don't see much anymore and hardly anyone carrys pocket watchs anymore so there aren't many new ones to collect now days.

The salemen use to come out to the jobsite and all us operators would hurry over to see if they would give us a watchfob.It was a big thing back in the good old days.:dancing:

The Case tieclip was one i got ,plus i use to have a set of cufflinks to go with it,but somewhere in the move to single lifestyle they got lost,at least i haven't been able to find them anyway.

I have a lot more buckles and fobs,also some keychains with graders on them,a couple tiepins with graders on them.Got several old fobs,Eculid C6,TC12 dozers,one Eculid fob with scraper on one side and flip it over and has large rock truck on the other side.

Also a bunch of Hesston buckles and a couple tiepins of those.Just got done going through them for kicks to see what was there,been awhile.Found some for my first Cat dealer at D.M. ,Iowa,which was Gibbs/Cook,but is now Ziegler Cat.

Also have a writing pen+pencil set 14k gold plated Cat!:cool2: Thats back when gold wasn't worth much:):usflag:
