It all began Xmas 1975, received a Southern Freight Set as gift, I was 6 years old. It was the best gift ever! From that point on I wanted everything Lionel. It didn't help that we lived across the street from the Reading Railroad Jersey Shore Line, that just added more fuel to the fire. I eventually purchased that same house I grew up in and still live there today. The trains still go by, just not as often. We couldn't always afford new trains sets, so I saved up dollars and added pieces when I could. We built a platform and the trains came up from the basement every year for Xmas. As I got older I played with them less frequent, but still always had them on Xmas. They were in storage for a few years as a late teen. It was in my early twenties, that brought the birth of my son along, and they returned to their old glory days of Xmas. Through the years I have added much to my collection and stashed it. I am mainly a Lionel MPC era collector with some Modern Lionel pieces. I have over 500 pieces in my collection and I am in the midst of cataloging it all. It will take some time but please bare with me. My hope is to buy/trade pieces to complete some sets, lines, and production runs I have, and share the rest with those who may be looking to do the same.
