"and the music ... is sold by lawyers"

jim, is that directed at me? I happen to be a lawyer and I write songs, but I'm not selling anything. LOL

In fact, I have never sold even one of my trains. Maybe because when I was a kid, my mother, who was a Lionel train lover, believed so much in the Lionel products and that they would always go up in value, that she told me never to sell or trade any of my trains. I did trade a couple of trains with a friend, but never sold any for my entire life. Main reason for that is I'm a sentimental fool when it comes to my trains. LOL

Incidentally, for much of my mother's life (81 years from 1909 to 1991), Lionel trains in good condition usually did go up in value.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

No not at all.   And I am the same way.   I have my first train (lionel DT&I work train set). And all the H.O. trains that I accumulated up until last Christmas.   Have to ask Johnny Lee who he was directing that phrase at lol

Reminds me of the Lombard log puller.
Note where the stearing is in relation to where the throttle would be.

Check out the video. Looks like is slide a bit around te corners as the steering ski takes a bit to bite in.

Cowboys 'n Injuns... wow... When things don't get off on the right foot, such as mistaking indigenous (native) people as those from India, we get the term "Indians", when in fact, only Indians are associated with India. That is, in fact, what happened back in the early days when Europeans first came to this land. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal to most non-native people in America, but how many native people can afford the trains and goodies most of us think nothing of? Native people are sacred, as sacred as any race of people, but non-native people could do themselves a big favor by recognizing that the misnomer of a whole race of hosts that got bullied out of the way is a wall that guards against understanding.  Just sayin'...and not meant as a slam to any person, but ignorance unchallenged is of service to no one.IMG_3298 Actual owners of the NPE&G Railroad on one of their "Meet 'n Greet Fun Daze"...

imageAnd here's s close up of an OGR On-Line Forum hobo who spent all his money on O Gauge Trains:

imageIf I had a big stick with a nap sack at the end of it over my shoulder, I would look just like that hobo.

OMG, I am that hobo. LOL

If any of you guys come to the White Plains, NY train show this Sunday and see that hobo, that's me!

I will do my best to dress just like him so you recognize me.

Paul,

I looks good.  Love your double dome tanker.  Where did you get that little sand house?  Is that a kitbash?  

Thanks, the building was scratch built to fit under an old Plasticville building's roof, I'm not sure what building it came from because all I had was the roof.
