As I've been sorting through more of my father's collection, getting things organized and then deciding what to sell in the O, S and Standard Gauge stuff he had (some of which I'm keeping), I remembered one things that we both looked at here and there, saying we needed to get it, and never did: the American Flyer Polar Express set.
He always loved the look of it, being more scale looking than the regular Lionel one (plus he always had more a love for Flyer stuff anyway!)
So, I sold a couple of my own trains to have money at the ready, and decided to finally get the last train he said we should try to get, that Flyer Polar Express.
I wanted one anyway, but this will be a good way to honor him, by finally getting that set. Can't wait to get it and give it a run!
