The Texas Special 210 set that I received on Christmas in 1958. Still runs like it was brand new out of the box 62 years later.


Bill, gorgeous set......thank you for sharing......1958 is a catalog that I have memorized because my 1st set, the NH F3 freight came from it.....I always loved the catalog picture of your set.


Thank you, is a thrill to see your set! Though I run mostly stuff with modern electronics, my knees weaken when I see a great PostWar set like yours!

That catalog picture is also famous for the Monon, Soo Line and State of Maine operating boxcars.....I remember the outrageous prices they were going for in the 80s and 90s.
