from the 2005 model railroad show in dayton, ohio. i actually have a #239 engine and tender. when i was about 4 or 5, my mom sent my grandfather out to buy me one of those fisher-price toy train sets (they were made of wood in those days 🙂 ). instead, he came home with a lionel train set. it came with that engine, some rolling stocck, a circle of track, and a transformer. some of my fondest memories are sitting on the floor with him, playing with the trains. over the years the collection grew, and is still in the basement at my parents house. they’ll be selling the house soon, and sadly i will have to sell most of it, but i will keep the original set forever. by the way, my family never let pop forget about it. 🙂
