William C. Quick O-scale Collection Sale

Sep 12, 2016

Friends and customers of Buffalo Creek Graphics:

As some of you may have heard, I was recently appointed as a fiduciary for the estate of the late William C. "Bill" Quick. Bill was a long-time friend and colleague at the Nickel Plate Road Historical & Technical Society and his love of the NKP is reflected in his several collections of models, books, railroad memorabilia, and ephemera.

Since mid-May, two colleagues and I have been organizing and liquidating segments of Bill's estate, the largest portion being his extensive collection of HO brass (now sold out). We are now ready to release a list containing Bill's 3-rail O-scale collection. The following link will take you directly to a PDF file of the entire list, which you can download for review.

While his collection is quite diverse with LIONEL, MTH, and Atlas O represented, one portion of the collection contains Buffalo Creek Graphics cars, many of which have long been sold out. This is a "best offer" liquidation, so there are no prices listed. At the direction of the Trustee, we will accept any reasonable offer but, since "reasonable" is a rather subjective term, there may be some negotiation necessary to meet mutual expectations. However, this is a rare opportunity to purchase high-quality O-scale models at the price you want to pay. Nothing happens until you make an offer.

What you see on the list is what is available and there are no duplicates. This list is being made public this week and we will be working strictly on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to make an offer and place a reservation, please contact me immediately at

For the record, neither I nor the other two trust agents are accepting any fees or commissions for our work on behalf of the Trust. By mutual agreement, in lieu of commissions, the Trustee will be making a donation in Bill's name to the NKPHTS, for whom he served on the Board of Directors for many years.

All the best and thank you for your consideration and support,

John T. Slater
