While at Garden Ridge the other day- I was searching through the clearance section (a usual habit of mine).... I found an HO train set (Bachmann) marked "Does not work" and priced at $8. So I bought it.... I don't model HO and had no clue what may be wrong, but figured I could salvage stuff from the set... I liked the price. When I got home, I opened the box to find one boxcar missing the underframe, and the caboose was missing one axle. I hooked up the track and the engine runs fine. I pulled an axle from my junk box and the caboose rolls great.... My 5 year old daughter loves my trains (N scale), but really likes the bigger ones.... Guess what she'll be getting Christmas morning this year! I figure she can run her $8 train as fast as she wants.... Tear it up.... Try weathering or painting.... Whatever she wants to do with it. Don't forget to check those clearance racks folks.... Ya never know what may be hiding back in the piles of junk!
