A Lone Scout
Haven't seen too many Lone Scouts on tables at train shows. Nor have I seen many in private collections. I think this might be something that needs to get reproduced.... This is one of those great sets that isn't a gigantic, majestic set (like a Comet or State Set) yet looks really cool in person. Color seems to effect size. The colors on this train are bold and stark and they leave a lasting impression. I really like some of the chances American Flyer took on their wide gauge trains.
I wish I could go back 75 years and pack a few warehouses with sets..... But then I'd have to save real Trolleys and the Hiawatha as well as a full Hudson and the Twentieth Century Limited. I'd run out of room in about 72 hours.
