Thanks to all for your feedback! To clarify, I'm actually not looking to buy any of these - rather, I'm considering selling and deciding on which I'll keep. This list represents my current woodrail collection; none are currently set up and nearly all need work to varying degrees, but they all also either have good original or repro backglasses and plastics.

I'm anticipating that I'll sell a number of them this winter as part of an in-progress overall reduction and modernizing of my pinball collection. Stay tuned if interested.

Quoted from o-din:

I don't need to own three of them although it would be nice, but if I had to pick only one it would be Frontiersman. So I did.

For me, the only thing more beautiful in the world of pinball than a nice condition woodrail is a lineup of them. Attending PPE and seeing all of the beautiful woodrails there is what originally gave me the fever for collecting them.

Although Frontiersman originally was not high on my wish list, my appreciation of it has grown tremendously with time. Several EM pinball aficionados have told me how much they have enjoyed playing theirs.

3/13/16 Update:

I think I've decided which three I'm keeping and the first (Spot Bowler) of the rest is currently up for sale to high bidder at no reserve.

Ignore (or not ) the Pinside listing price. As noted, this will sell for high bid on eBay. Not to worry - I will be honoring the additional sale fee to Pinside nonetheless when it closes.

Photos of my games for sale can be viewed at:

More to be added as I get them prepped and photographed (a slow process). I plan to make all sales available to high bidder - some with reserves, some not.

Stay tuned and feel free to PM me with any questions in meantime. Thanks.
