I am attempting to upload photos, but it is very difficult. I am a new member, so forgive me. I have always loved miniatures. In the past, I worked for large Industrial Companies as an Architect/Designer. One of those companies was PITNEY BOWES. More than 20 years ago, before closing their Factory Museum in Stamford, CT, I was asked if I wanted the entirety of the 1/4" scale factory model display. I accepted, and have been the owner ever since. Because of the vast size (more than 10,000 items) I have determined that the best choices are to either sell the pieces individually, or divide it up into many small factories. The items are all vintage, and many pieces were created by the company "Visuals" which is long gone. I will try to load more photos if I can.

They are truly excellent detail pieces!
Many modelers would like to find items like that for their industrial structures.

Not meant to go off topic, but I just want to show you my love for miniatures. I built this from scratch, not from a kit. It is a 1/2" scale model of Kristoff's sleigh based on the movie "Frozen", with a few added touches of my own.

I went online, and discovered that an auctioneer recently sold items similar to mine, although what I saw in their photos was not at all up to the standards I would have expected: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/55363091_large-grouping-of-industrial-design-miniatures

I am going to post here what I have. I hope you enjoy. BTW Happy New Year! Here is a photo of some of my O Gauge trains, and photos of the 1/4" scale vintage factory equipment that I have maintained here at home. If I do end up selling what I have, it will be done much differently, and much more professionally in order to ensure the quality of sale.

An absolutely amazing assemblage of very well detailed, scale model industrial items. And figures as well to go with them.
You have a real scale modeler's treasure trove there!

Here are the scaled plans for the original factory. They were drawn by an architect friend of mine who worked for me on several projects while we were there at the PB Plant nearly 40 years ago. The original factory museum was located there at the site. The model of the 1/4" scale factory was configured pertaining to the original factory layout.
