Tennessee State Fair: Model Trains

I always wanted a big, cool model trains setup when I was a kid, but I had no money...and by the time I discovered records, well, that's where the money went. But I admire the folks who build these elaborate displays. Yes, I am a geek.

I never knew you wanted a model train! Didn't Dad build a very simplified version of one around the Christmas tree one year --- or am I just imagining that?

Great pictures!

Hmm. I kind of remember that. And I did have an engine and some cars with chemical company names that dad gave me. That could be the same train. In fact, I think I still have it in a box somewhere.

But I remember going to the hobby store in Westport and being astounded at how much track and stuff cost...So I never really pursued it.

I should see if I still have that train!
