       Vic & his Tin Plate Layout did it.

      Made me remember being a 9 year old boy with his first electric train set.

      Christmas 1959, I got a Sears/Marx-Allstate O27 Steam Freight Set.

       

      Only took 52 years, but I recently acquired a '72 Lionel Blue Streak Freight Set

      and have the 3 rail fever again.

       

       Yup, it's all Vic's Fault.

      At least that's what I tell SWMBO...

      Actually Vic, I bartered for the trains.

      Cutting down on the excess misc. things that are cluttering up my storage area, (no trains),

      while we're getting ready to sell the house & move. 

      I'm working on a deal with the same guy for a couple of sets of tin plate cars (some have your name on them, to repay you for your kindness)....

      Of course once the Kool Aid has been drank...

      I just couldn't pass up on 3 Marx Trains sets, a big box of track, switches,crossovers,

      & another big box full of accessories..

      The price was extremely reasonable, less than what I would have paid for the track alone....
