Reply to "Grandsons' Train Layouts"

My niece is turning 3 next week.  I got her one of the wooden sets as she had played with the one I had as a kid (I told my sister I'd like to save that one for my own kids) and recently she was at a children's museum which had a big wooden setup and was hooked.  Surprisingly last Christmas she did very well with the stuff I had under the tree.  She quickly learned how to work the big orange handle on the CW 80 so she could stop the train, put her stuffed animal on a car, run it around, snatch the stuffed animal off, and repeat the process.  She was getting a kick out of it.  I have an old NYC Flyer that was one of Lionel's staple beginner sets in the 1990s that'd I'd be happy to give her; it's a cheapo set so no big deal if it get's roughed up by little hands, but I'm on strict instructions from my sister to wait another year or two.  (But what are uncles for besides breaking the rules )
