Sunday we took off and went to the Toy and Train Show. It has been marked on our calendar of events for a few months! It was interesting. This year there were many more old toys.
Some old guys must be hoarding these toys..
I enjoyed looking at all of them.
The Magic Garage and Car Box was just as much as the Magic Garage..and I did not see a car.
I recall that my brother or maybe Danny B. had a metal building..it had metal tabs and you lined up the tabs to put the building together. Sometimes the tabs would have been moved back and forth so much that they would break off. Far Guy said that there were playsets called Fort Apache, The Rifleman and Wagon Train. The one on the left is from a Western Ranch Set and the one on the right is possibly from The Rifleman.
This one caught my eye right away. Then Far Guy caught up with me..and it came home with us. It works..as in.. it still winds up. There were no cars.. Far Guy found some on Online..so at least we know what we are looking for now. The ones Online are $50 each..so we will scour antique shops and garage sales..who knows what we will find.
Since this was “a date” my date bought me a new/old book.
1927 was a good year! It only has twelve pages..but they really knew how to make books back then. The colors are awesome.
Oh yes..it was a train show. I wanted a Lionel Car that has horses or a giraffe that move their heads up and down. Far Guy was looking for a Lionel Merry Go Round. We struck out…there was one giraffe car but it was missing parts. Far Guy did buy a new signal that should light up..he is working on it..trying to figure out where he can place it! :)
** It was cloudy early Sunday morning..no Iridium Flares, Orionid Meteors or Northern Lights were seen.
