So true. For me the post-war simplicity is so relaxing. As a carpenter, I am and always was a stickler for detail and preciseness. The simplicity of post-war Lionel trains takes me into my own little world. Away from the stress of dealing with clients and $$$$$
Personally I kinda am a stickler for both details and simplicity. I like the traditional line because it allows me to transport myself to the fantasy world of Lionelville USA but the stickler for details because one day that little bar saying "BUILT BY LIONEL/SKU NUMBER" will eventually become too bothersome for me.
