Old Toy Trains

It’s almost Christmas! Our daughter wants to get the tree decorated and our son wants to set up the toy train underneath the tree. I feel like a kid again!

I was one of the lucky boys whose dad gave him a Lionel train. We had great fun watching it run around and around and around the oval track. Wooooo! Wooooo!

The meteorologists are saying a snow storm is coming into our area tomorrow so we are going to stay inside and decorate and finish setting up the train. I hope to post a few photos once we have it together.

“Old toy trains,
Little toy tracks,
Little boy toys,
Coming from a sack,
Carried by a man dressed in white and red,
Little boy don’t you think it’s time you were in bed?”

(As sung by Roger Miller)

  1. Merry Christmas, Bob and the best of luck in your endeavors in the coming year.

    I was frustrated as a child in that I was fascinated with the trains, but my parents never bought me an electric one. We had a few of the key-wind types, but it seemed that they never lasted too long.
