My First Train!

  1. While hunting for some old photos, I found this picture of my very first train, when I was 6 years old. Sadly, this train no longer exists, but I assure you it was quite fun!

    :D :D :D :p

    First Trains...

    Ah, the gool old Maerklin M-Track - I remember it well.

    My first train pictures are from my Dad's old 8mm film camera. I was barely able to sit on my own in the middle of a circle of Tri-Ang track, with a short train going around me. I'd crane my neck to watch as it went by....and fall over. You could see the camera wobble as my Dad laughed - followed by a break, and I'd be sitting back up again. The train would start, and I'd crane to follow it as it went behind me....... :D

    I'm the little one on the left, and if I remember correct, the picture was taken the day after christmas. I can't remember if I put it together myself or if my dad helped me, but I remember sitting there almost all day watching the train going around and around and around.....

    Hi all. Screwysquirrel, you sure took me in on that one. I was ready to see this old black and white picture of a lionel, with all the boxes sitting there. Guess you had to eat your train. What a waste. Well, at least you did get pictures, and since they are in color, that means you are a youngster.

    All have a great day tomorrow. Jack.
