The Second Half of the Lee Hieronimus Collection -- TCA CM5-101
 
Julius Leland Hieronimus ran a very successful Lionel Service Station from 1934 until he sold it in 1968. See the 2019 Spring and Summer issues of the Train Collector's Quarterly to learn about Lee. He took old trains on trade-in. Lee didn't sell them with the store.

Shortly after Lee died in 1982, two local collectors here in Alameda, CA, bought his train collection and split it up. In 1985, one of them sold many of the rarer items in his half. I bought that fellow's collection in the Fall of 2018. Besides Lionel, it included a lot of Ives and American Flyer, both in O and Standard Gauge.

The other fellow kept his half of Lee's trains mostly intact. I bought that collection in July of 2019. It was about all Lionel Standard Gauge except for the rare Santa Fe F3 presentation piece that you see below. It included six trolleys and three Interurbans; all formerly owned by Lee.
