    I have seen the toy train show. It is nice to see the lionel pieces, but the presentation is so dry and boring. I found it hard to stay awake

    I remember that episode. IIRC, they are old 4-4-0's and it was postulated that they were on some sort of platform lashed to the deck of a sailing vessel which foundered during a bad storm.

    Either the skid with the locos broke free or was cut loose, and they ended up together, in pristine condition, upright on the bottom.

    i believe plans to recover and restore them are in the works.
