As I was cleaning up after our re-model I found all my postwar 3R. The first piece I opened was my absolutely favorite Lionel locomotive, the 2046. As I have gotten older I really like to just watch trains run and listen to the wheels rumble over tubular track. I gave up with sound several years ago because of extremely poor hearing, it sounds like a roar to me.
In my space I could have 4 loops of 3R track and run all postwar with postwar accessories. It has me doing some serious thinking about making the change. I probably wont be it is tempting.
BTW, I am glad the re-model is almost over, 40 days longer than we were told!!!!!
