“Al.. here is what we were up to to day ..good old steam showing Railways at War… we should never forget how big a part the railway played during the war.
I view each one of your E-Mails and find all of them educational/enjoyable. I acquired my first Lionel Train Set Christmas 1953 (3rd grade) and additional trains/stock every Christmas there after.
This went on for 5 years and accumulated enough to cover a board 4′ x 12′. By todays value, of $2,100.00, using E-bay as a reference, I’m in the process of resurrecting my childhood experience. I’m retired, 73 and no room to start my project which now includes what I have collected over the last 10 years and my original layout. This required an accessory building to include my train room.
I have attached pictures of my collection and start of construction. If you feel this undertaking is worthy of your posts I will send updates as we go.
A big thanks to Dave and Lionel.
I thought Lionel’s post captures the genuine excitement of making a start.
And Dangerous Dave – I really enjoy all his vids – but especially liked today’s. Hope you did too.
That’s all this time. Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going on your layout.
