Trailer full of model trains stolen in Tulsa
Posted by Rene Schweitzer on Thursday, June 29, 2017 9:20 AM

We've learned that the Tulsa Garden Railroad Club had a trailer full of their equipment stolen, just a couple of weeks before they host the national convention. 

Sharing in case someone can help them recover the items.

That stinks.

Going off the video they went straight for that trailer.

Hope they get caught

Is there a group watching ebay or other auction sites?

I would imagine some of the club members would be.

I think if you read between the lines (thieves steal a nice UMARKED trailer from the club, then steal another trailer "U Haul", and dump the stuff from the nice trailer to the U Haul... probably the thieves just wanted the trailer.

It was a nice looking trailer, and very little difficulty to grind off any serial number, if any, and re-register for their off road stuff or whatever.

I think you will find that whatever was not recovered (which has not been made public I guess) is gone forever, i.e. the thieves did not want the trains.
