Charles e Whisnant, Train and Locomotives Display 2016

This is only a display,, I have tracks, but I do not at this time to run the locomotives on the tracks, maybe at a later time I will.

How this train cars got started
This train project started when John Hall Sr. felt sorry for me. I had said in our bible study that I didn't believe in Christmas anymore.

When I was in the first grade I wanted a electric train. But Dad and Mom could not afford one, and they got me a windup train.  I was so sad.

So John got home that Sunday and pulled out an old train set that he had for years


This is the finish project as of 11 29-16
I went to the Portsmouth Ohio Train Show November 27-28 2016
and all this work was done on 11 28 2016

But before this I had this display

So I  thought I would made a display
of the buildings that John gave me.

But then I didn't have any train cars, so that lead me to go to the Second Street Hardware and Toy store in Portsmouth
and over a few months got these trains and cars.

So what started out as getting some trains for the grandkids, honest, I went to K mart and got these little toy trains and one thing let to another and so I just made a display out of them.

Then one thing let to another
Then I bought some trains and locomotives
This is a great book to learn about Trains and Locomotives
I bought this wall hanging a few years ago
We were at Guhls in Jackson Ohio
This was a hanging wall picture of a great train at Guhls
This section of the display shows the first section.
This the second section of trains and locomotives
This is a whole view of the display of 2feet by 10 feet
