Christmas Present Preservation

Christmas would be woefully lacking without some toy train action.   I have managed to preserve the first electric train set I got for Christmas in 1955:

And the second, in 1957.  They are both still operational.  It's a heck of a lot easier than preserving the real thing, of course.  Merry Christmas!

What about a Lionel train set? - do you have one and save it?

Randy and all,
I to had American Flyer trains. Wasn't that New Haven passenger motor a great model!

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all of you at the Illinois Railway Museum!
