Lionel Trains Mean Christmas

Lionel Polar ExpressFound this very cool Lionel train set on Amazon. When I was a kid I had a great Lionel set. In reality it wasn’t much more than an oval of track, a steam engine, and a few cars. But I loved it dearly and it was one of those that makes you think back and go “why on earth did I ever get rid of that.”  I went from Lionel, to HO, to N gauge, and now I have mostly British OO trains.  But I still miss those big Lionel.  The LEGO railroad that my son and I build under the Christmas tree is nice, but there is something about the sound of the Lionel cars over that three rail track that just can’t be beat.
