1959 Lionel Train under the Christmas Tree 2007

This is a 1959 Lionel train set bought by my grandfather for my Dad when he was 7 years old. My Dad gave it to me last year (2006) to put under the tree. This was the second year under my tree. Sadly, my Dad passed away this past summer. I’m glad he got to see it last year running again, and his memory lives on whenever we run this train.
