Progressland model up for auction

Recommended Posts

Interesting note that only 14 of these were made.

Somewhere online there is video of the lights in action on one of these.  That one was in auction 10 or 15 years ago and if I recall right went for something between $5k and $8k.  But my memory is questionable these days because of the pain meds I'm on.

The link said Undisclosed when I checked.  I couldn't find the bidding war history either.

I was secretly hoping someone I know could have bought it but he was and still is on vacation.  :(.

Randy... you have a great memory.  I have a record of that model auction at nywf64.com.  The model was #7 of 14.  It sold on 10/19/02 for $5100.  There’re photos of that model on the General Electric pages at nywf64.com

Hello Everyone:

I found a link to a site with a small video that shows one of these 14 models with the Plexiglass cover in place and the lights operating!!!  Here is the link if you would like to view the photos and the video:
