CHRISTMAS & TRAINS
JOEL HAS DRAWN A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE FOR YOU. BOTH BOYS ARE HAVING FUN WITH KYLE'S TRAINSET UNDER THE TREE.HEY!!! EMILY NEVER GOT A TRAIN SET!! We'll have to fix that next year (if she really wnats one) :>
GOOD oL' LIONELS! I love trains and have all kinds .Lionel isn't the only heartbeat out there when it comes to O-Guage model trains. In fact, MTH/Railking is top shelf when it comes to diecast cars and engines. K-Line was a terrific company.Then it copied some sound system Lionel had,Lionel sued & knocked K'Line outta business.BOO HISS!! I hate you, Lionel!! K-Line had FANTASTIC trains!! Way better than Lionel is putting out! Lionel likes plastic junky cars too much & too many in the stores' stock. K-Line had awesome diecast cars~ passenger,hoppers,etc.
I shall miss K-Line. Lionel bought them out after the lawsuit.That company will never be the same.
I have some Ive's tinplate passenger cars. They are over 100 years old.They went out of business during the Depression. Then Lionel bought them out and it became Ive's/Lionel. Then~~~~ BYE BYE IVE's.Never heard anything more about that company. I guess K-Line will end up the same (:( I feel so bad! BOO HISSSS !
