I have this train collection that is stored away for no one to see. So I thought it might be nice if no one could actually see my collection in person, at least they could see it in JPG form.
Actually the reason I don't display my collection in the store is because when I did, people wanted to buy items out of it, and I didn't want to sell of course. And sometimes people got mad at me for that. So unless you are willing to go around double retail on any item, please don't ask!!
This is the first time I have actually had my entire collection out at one time. I found some things I didn't remember, and I didn't find some things I thought I had. I was surprised to find two 2322 Virginians. I'll have to check to see if they are different variations. If not, maybe the owner of Train City will let me trade one in for something I don't have. (He's a nice man!!)
My collection is not gigantic. I try to keep most of my money in the business, and not in my collection. But when I buy collections and I see something I really like, usually the owner of Train City gives me a nice deal. So humble as it may be, it is mine, and I really like it.
The items I collect mainly are very high grade, or hard to find items. I collect both American Flyer and Lionel. Well actually I'd collect anything if it is nice and in a box. My favorite piece is the 68 Inspection Car. It is as close to mint as I have found, and you don't see many of those! Probably the rarest item is a recent addition. I found the 462 Derrick Platform in a collection I purchased in North Dakota. I had never seen one, and it is pretty close to mint also if not actually mint. I could go on and on, but hey, the pictures speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy this. I plan on updating this when I purchase new items as this is a great way to keep track of my collection!
