    Am 22 and loved Lionel sense I was 3 years old, now Ive got over 30 model trains and a 5 by 12 ft layout, I love the post and prewar years for trains that’s what I collect. And other antiques from those years. I love old shows and moves form the 1930-60′s nice great years, I would love to grow up in.

    I have never gone a day without being grateful to my dad for buying me a lionel train set when I was 6. It got me into model railroading. I still set up the lionel up around my christmas tree every year. It’s a shame that it’s over here at my mom’s. But my dad and I have a layout at his place. So, not a total loss.

  • Ease54 says:

  • fiftiesflashback1953 says:

    PS: I received a 2037 Loco & Tender (The Black verion of the PINK GIRL’S SET), a Submarine Car, a Rocket Launcher & an Exploding Box Car that year. I still have the Engine & tender, but like many Viet Nam era boomers, I traded all my “war inspired” toys for those of a gentler time.

  • fiftiesflashback1953 says:

    I remember getting ready to watch this one Saturday evening, Mom had put my dinner on a tray in the living room in front of the old RCA television. I was not even 10 yet, it was the last year I received trains for Christmas before I became “too old” and they became passe. Then I grew-up and like many Boomers, the trains came out of the attic and model railroading mania set it. GREAT POSTING!

  • Ease54 says:

    Wow! I saw this on TV about 50 years ago…
