“I want a Toy Train for Christmas, Please Santa.”
This was the heartfelt wish of my husband, son and thousands of little boys all across the country not too very long ago. Back in time before Gameboys, Nintendos and Wiis appeared to focus our children’s minds on a screen - enough said.
Toy trains still hold their charm and can still delight the young and old to create a miniature world of their own. Whether it is around the Christmas tree, or on a sheet of plywood down in the basement or (what I am wishing for) through the garden to show off my herbs which are the perfect scale plants for “G” gauge.
This auction we are happy to offer some amazing trains and other items for the advanced train lover or the beginner.
Please see item 105 A very rare Marx Tin Litho Union Pacific Overland Mail Model 10005 engine and six cars.
If you are just starting may I suggest item 59 or 60 we have two Brand New in Box Tyco Rail Master 102 Giant Train Sets. Guaranteed to provide lots of fun.
If you have a set and are looking for the perfect piece to enhance your collection please see the Gilbert real timber Log Car and red Caboose in item 106.
Don’t forget the vintage railroad crossing signs in item 101.
Hope this helps cross some gifts off your list this Christmas and from our family to yours have a very Merry Christmas, blessed Holiday Season and a Very Happy New Year. Thank you for your support.
