Classic Toy Trains Must Read

I'm not a great fan of Classic Toy Trains magazine because my interests are out of sync with the focus of the magazine. However, once in a while an issue of CTT does contain the kind of article that resonates with me. In the January, 2009 issue there is an interesting article on Standard gauge collector and operator Chuck Stone. I've met Chuck a few times at York, he's a nice, friendly guy who is fun to talk with. His collection, which focuses on Lionel and IVES, is extensive. The CTT article includes some good photos of Chuck's layout and collection. The text of the article points out that this is actually Chuck's third collection...he had to dispose of earlier 0 gauge collections for personal reasons. Today his interests in prewar Standard gauge are well represented on his shelves and on his layout.
