Hello and Welcome Fellow Train Nut -
If you like pre-war trains, you have come to the right place! I am a nut for standard gauge - from Lionel, Jim Cohen, JAD, Joe Mania, MTH and anyone else willing to try building this amazing stuff.
Why are standard gauge trains amazing? Because they have stood the test of time. They are toys and yet much more. They are works of art. Moving art, that makes a music all its' own, has color that's all its own and can be as individual as the builder of the trains as well as the eventual lucky owner.
There are hobbyists that are purists, standard gauge toys from Lionel from 1925 to 1939 will only do. There are folks like me that just plain old love trains. But you are here for the standard gauge. I wanted to start this blog because I want a place for people to post ideas, new products and great layout photos and ideas.
We are the holders of rare and wonderful items - standard gauge toy trains. Let's talk about them as much as we can whenever possible.
