o, I got a great deal on a bulk of Flyer track, enough to do something fun! This is early days stuff with black rails. The switches throw, and most of the lamps light up. Trying to come up with an idea...

 Also got a loop of 0-27, and an LGB caboose.

I am not at liberty to reveal my sources....

Yeah, I guess if you told us you'd have to kill us and that would be awkward, to say the least!  And VERY labor intensive!  Surprise

so, I went to the train show. Picked up a 1952 Silver Streak and cars. Another K5, this one is a 313. A Bachmann PRR baggage car. And a large bulk of used G gauge track for cheap. I intend to remove the rails, and hand lay a 3 rail O gauge loop in the garden. Now I have the materials to proceed, when I get a

Round Tuit....

Got my new toys cleaned and serviced. Already earning their keep.

 

I seriously need to stop buying stuff, unless we get a bigger house.....

The Gilbert track with the black rail webs is 1946 only so it is not real common.

You could always just by a second house nearby for the trains.

I got a great deal on a complete Flyer set last year. It had a SIT 312 and cars. The rails were black, and I originally thought they were badly stained. Somewhere on the internet I saw that was actually a thing in the early years. A rare bit of history!

  Yes, I'm loaded up with trains! And I keep saying " this will be the last one"....
