*Crap. The video isn't working across platforms. Sorry. I'm working on it!
Danny was able to get the trains running with a bit of cleaning and tinkering. The engines gave off impressive sparks and puffs of dust but after so many decades in storage, that's not unexpected. The nearly 80 year old transformers are still in solid working condition, but the two we had that were made in the 50s were useless. Go figure. They're encased in what appears to be bakelite or perhaps celluloid. We have a giant box of track and accessories, but for the moment the track is set up around the Christmas tree in the usual cliché presentation. It is nice to see a modern teenager enjoying something like a model railroad. Some things are timeless, I suppose.
Not sure why I'm in such an 80s mood of late, but this Moda blazer and vintage belt are satisfying a desire to dress like it is 1986.
