Angela, The Best Friend of Charleston print is incredible! To me, it evokes the artwork that would be on Ives, Flyer or any of the early toy train packages or catalogs, back when the imagination was bigger than the world!

Re: What is this?

TeleDoc ·
The photo is too dark, so I suggest you go into you photo section on the iPhone, and do an edit. It should bring up options to lighten the photo, so the photo is clear to view. I know there are 3 or 4 options when you click the edit on the iPhone, which I don't have with me right now, so you have to scroll through each one, until you find the one that lets you edit the brightness etc., and then save it, and then repost it again.

What is this?

A friend of mine sent me a picture of this train. Not sure of what scale it is. It is obviously tinplate. Sorry for the iphone pic, its all I've got. Who made it? When was it made? What is it worth? Any info is greatly appreciated.

I've seen the "band" on the boiler before. But what exactly going on with the paint, and that tender? Is that a "rusty" rail crane, or artillery guns with camo That photo turned out pretty bad. It needs more light in the room, and time spent getting the distance right. More shots might help too. The pilot, the motor, the couplers, the tender trucks, etc., are often great clues. As for knowing the gauge, it only takes a dollar ... Fold a bills length in quarters, and you have an approximate...

I right-clicked on the image and selected "Search Google for image". Google says it's a vintage Murray Tee Bird pedal car. In this case, I think the eBay definition of vintage (= rusted) applies. What, me worry?

It looks close to O gauge. To the right of the picture is a lionel 2035. He said that it was his great grand fathers old push toy from when he was a kid.

I'm no tin expert, but the long dome was used on Sakai tin at least. (and sold state-side by the 1950's) That's where I thought I saw the band before too, but haven't found the same site yet. Sakai had another spelling at one time too. I think the logo stamp was just an S or SA on the bottom, or on the wheels. Find the right site on JAPANESE PW tin and you'll find trains, mfg.s, logos, and marks, to possibly help more. Sakai was a decent company, and compares to some Marx/Lionel of the day.

Trains were made for little boys

Rayin"S" ·
We had friends of the family visit last week and three of the boys got a chance to run some trains using the Legacy system along with the Flyer Chief. These boys are all ten yrs and under and adapted quite well to the wireless system of operation. There were a few mishaps but with no or very minor damage. One wreck looked pretty prototypical and I wish I had thought to take a shot of it. I would have liked to catch one of the wrecks happening but I had my hands full. Seeing the fun they were...

Great video. No need to apologize for video quality. You got the looks on the boys faces, that makes it great. Tstark . This beats the grumpy vendor and customer post.

Video was fine. Nice to see the kids enjoying the trains. They looked like they were getting into it and also being pretty careful as well. Looks like they were really concentrating on their trains and what they were doing. I get more enjoyment out of watching the kids than I do running the trains myself. I think many others have the same feelings. As for wrecks, every time I have had kids over here it was not the kids that wrecked the trains, it is always me when trying to show them...

Reminds me of my daughter on Monday when we (myself, my wife and daughter) went to the Walter Anderson nursery a block away from work to look at the G Scale trains on (running) display. The idea was to see their real size and if we liked them. As soon as she saw the trains running she screamed "CHOO-CHOO" and was pointing and trembling with excitement! Now I have to set up a layout, no choice. But I gotta say, not just for little boys! She might grow out of it later (she just turned 2), but...

Ray, yeah, my daughter might grow out of the train thing but for now it is to my advantage! she also loves animals, cars and planes. but she is only two and starting to discover the world so who knows where her interests will go later. BTW she does have a purse and likes to go shopping with Mommy too! Helmut

Helmut, Our visitors included one younger boy age four and a girl age three, these two were also anxious to see the trains but, I must be honest, when my wife brought the doll buggy out Abby lost interest in the trains. Abby does visit at the Mad City train show and is always excited to see the layouts and ride the kiddy train. Ray

Garrett's 2016 Christmas village and train layout

Garrett76 ·
It's a start. Going with a traditional oval layout unlike previous years "behind-the-tree" format. It's 4x8 modular benchwork on a folding table. Have to keep it up off the floor lest the dog reenact a scene from Godzilla. I hope to incorporate several button activated operating accessories to make the layout interactive for family and guests. More to come.

Hey looks like a good start to me. Two houses ago when I didn't have much space, I set up my 4x8 on a folding table too. Plywood on top of that and I had a blast running my trains. It's all in the imagination! Would enjoy seeing more pics as you progress.

Here's a pic of the underside of the benchwork. I hope to reuse this for the next few years. Any further expansions would be build with similar modular 4x4 panels. The rectangular cutouts at the back are to allow clearance for some curtains with the main body of the layout staged close to a wall

Try this and see if you like it 8" x 17" cut outs. Road bed is close, no touching.

G, Looking at the 3D, the inside loop won't fit. The roadbed edges of inner and outer are on top of one another at the bottom. What's the width and depth of the cut-outs for the curtains?

I think the cutouts are 8 x 18. The track plan is more of a guideline than a rule. There will be some changes in final execution. I'm not bumping out into the rear section due to some scenery elements

Your idea about using the plastic fold up table as benchwork to support the layout is brilliant. I never would have thought of it. I learn something every time I read this forum.
