    These were built by my dad over 20 years ago. Survived over 20 years stored in a box (includes a least 3 moves).

    Neat. Just got some Lionel from my Grandmother. Grandfather past last month. Now I need to decide on to clean/or not the loco and tender. Many years of Cigerette smoke in with the dust. Bleh!

    These are great too. Keep them coming. Is the lichen getting brittle? You can soften it back up with alcohol and glycerin mix. FRED

    Great work from a great modeler. Cherish them well. When my Dad died last year, all of his train stuff was lost, leaving me to build and collect from memory for his grandkids.
