I collect the older HO scale trains

You know what?.... you never know where your going to go in one particular hobby...about 3 years ago my
son bought a farm set at a tractor show and mentioned that he would like to have a small train to go with it...
"a small train" ? "listen kid theres a room full of trains in the basement...dont bother me for "small ones" !!!

He persisted....and I gave in with this....

which lead to this....

Just goes to show you ....you never know where things are gonna take you...I collected Wheel Horse tractors
for 12 years and never thought I own a Panzer.

Oh man...
Seeing those HO scale pics makes me want to dig out the boxes and start the trains up.
I think I have the same plastic mountain in the first pic.

How about a tractor under the tree?.......Cool trains

I was never really into trains, had a set when I was young, but really got into slot cars as a kid.......I bought an old one at a yard sale for my 2 year old grandson....set it up for him, but he just wants to knock the cars off the track so far......lol...He will get it, meanwhile I have fun with them.

Boy do some of you guys have a nice collection of trains! Thanks for sharing the pics. We have a start on a 4' by 16' HO layout in the basement. I have most of the track laid but need to wire it all up. My layout gets work on it in Jan. and Feb. and then once it gets warmer out I'm down to the garage working on the tractors. We do have one of those larger battery powered Christmas trains under our Christmas tree.

Was in the attic today to get Christmas stuff for the wife, so as long as i was there i just had to peek at the 20+ O gauge trains all stacked along the wall just waiting till i have room to set them up along with Santa's workshop, home and all the north pole that i built a few years ago.
