This is the place where you can share photos, videos, and/or comments about your first train set, how you played with or ran it, what it means to you, etc.
I will start, not with my first train set, but the first train set of my dear Forum friend, Melgar.
During my telephone conversation with Melgar yesterday, we were discussing the Postwar trains we had as kids. It turns out that Melgar no longer has his first train set, but he described it to me. It was a 1949 Lionel freight set, and he believes it included a 2035 or 2025 Pacific steamer, tender, operating milk car, black gondola, Sunoco 2 dome oil tanker car and Pennsylvania caboose with round windows or portals.
I have that engine and those cars, which are shown in the photos below:
And, here is a short video of that same mixed freight train:
Now, it would be great if you all can share your first train set here.
Later on, I will share mine.
