    An opportunity to show another's skills---A man I met recently built the rides on this entire circus train from scratch, all the rides are faithfull models of folded down and packed up real ones---many easily recognized. The whole train runs over 12 feet and includes all other service cars not shown in the pictures. Set this old carny's heart a pitter patterin'....

    can you post the whole train, maybe a few cars at a time? Those are very cool.
    Is that the Freedom Train beside the Circus train?

    Here's the original shots I took those clips from for a view of the whole train. Yes, that is an AFT in the foreground, one of the Lionel issues from the 70s.

    Thanks Chessie 4155, I am estimating I have over 200 trucks/trailers and about 100 to 125 bobtails and other construction trucks/machines:eek: but that is just a guess, it would take for ever to count them and a lot of them are in boxes under my layout simply because there is not enough room on my layout for them:cry: :cry:

    Trucks to me are like engines to Deano (UP SD40-2)

    More to come soon!!!:thumb: :thumb:
