I don't have any but I had af ew as kid. That and tyco race tracks always were my favorite. My brother gives his kids train stuff each year. I think it was a Ringling Bros. complete set he bought the oldest which had something like 12+ cars. Santa brings one each year, almost to the caboose now. He did the same thoing with other two, his girl has a pink locomotive. :lol:

I still have my Lionel .027 trains, they usually show up under the tree, I many load some coal into the one car. That is if you don't mind if I borrow your idea.

Beautiful job with the coal train Chris! I wish Santa would leave coal in my stocking--say about 4 tons of rice!

Funny story, my uncle collects mining artifacts. I got him this 300lb.+ chunk of coal for Christmas the one year to put in his basement by his collection. It's Christmas day and the whole family is at his house, we're all admiring this piece of coal drinking a few beers and his granddaughter who was about 5 at the time comes down the steps. Her eyes got as big as saucers and she asks who got that, Grampa says its his and she goes "Wow pop, you must have been reeeeeeally bad to get that." It's one of those situations where you had to be there because you had to see how serious she was about it.
