       AUCTIONEER NOTE: Sale starts at 10 am. Little about Steve Eastburn, he was an Aviator Hobbyist (flew his own planes), a collector of trains, loved models of all kinds, was very interested in Rail Roads and its history, interested in WWII history. Was a very interesting person as you might tell by his collections. This might be that one sale you need to attend. Please come to our center and have a nice sit-down sale w/cool temperatures to beat the summer heat.
