Vintage Railroad PostCard

New & Postally Unused Condition


IRT Lo-V's at Astoria, Queens Station in 1965

Great Impossible-To-Find Vintage Post Card

ITEM DESCRIPTION:  Vintage Photo Post Card (PC) NEW & Postally Unused.  The photos shown are of the actual postcard listed.  Please note that the photo you are viewing is FULL SIZE so you can see the condition of the edges and is in below stated condition with below noted exceptions.  The postcard will be shipped in a clear plastic photo storage bag and sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard for protection and shipped in a manilla envelope for safe delivery to your address.

Postcards and Photos are a great collectible and source for future reference for model building, model railroading, scratchbuilding, prototype modeling etc. Postcard and photos are invaluable when you need to know certain details, architectural details, paint colors & schemes, lettering placement etc. for locomotives, freight cars, cabooses, trackage, buildings etc.  Postcards and photos also make great small framed pictures for use in bathrooms, train rooms, halls and other rooms in your house where a small colorful print is needed without overpowering the area.

POST CARD CAPTION:  INTERBOROUGH RAPID TRANSIT 5483.  A train of IRT Lo-V's brakes to a stop for the 39th Ave. Station on the Astoria, Queens line during a special excursion on November 14, 1965.  These cars are part of the city's historic collection and are shown in the original olive and black IRT colors.

Produced by:  Audio-Visual Designs

Photo by:  Carl H. Sturner

Postcard Number:  44823

RATING SCALE (see scale below):  GOOD

CONDITION:  This postcard is NEW and Postally Unused. The card was probably produced in the late 1960's but I don't know for sure.  The edges and corners show light wear as seen in photo. Please look at photos carefully.

PLEASE READ to understand shipping costs: Due to the THICKNESS & STIFFNESS of the envelope due to the cardboard protection, the items ships for the First-Class Package rate rather than the less expensive standard First-Class Letter rate. Presently, Delivery Confirmation is ONLY AVAILABLE on items shipped via First-Class PKG and Priority Shipping. Delivery Confirmation is NOT AVAILABLE with First-Class Letter rate postage - thus sellers are FORCED to ship items via First-Class PKG or Priority Shipping rates which are more expensive than the First-Class Letter rate.

ADDITIONALLY according to new eBay seller policies, "... sellers will need to have tracking information uploaded to eBay within their stated handling time on 90% or more of their transactions with US buyers." This means that we as sellers are REQUIRED to ship at a more expensive shipping rate which includes Delivery Confirmation for tracking purposes. Please visit the USPS website for First-Class Package/Parcel Rate confirmation https://www.usps.com/ship/first-class.htm . Scroll down to "PACKAGE" for correct rates.
