Thank you. That reminded me of a very similar train my grandfather gave me. Great memories there. Mine is long gone. I'm glad yours is still in great shape.

Hey! I have one of those too! Sold a bunch of my toys on epay a few years ago, but coudn't seem to let this one go. Mine still worked too after 30 years in some attics. Only other one like it I've seen is yours! Funny thing is, they sold in dimestores for ittle money back then. I had 89 cent tin toys from Japan, still labels on them and boxes that I sold for hundreds of dollars on epay. Blew my mind!
