My son-in-law got boxes of his boyhood trains while cleaning out his parents house when they moved. He asked me for help. My trains have been in boxes since the mid-nineties so being rusty I demonstrated some 30 year old techniques. Working one afternoon a week this is a months worth of progress. Two separate tracks, a figure eight and a folded oval. That way he and his 7yo son can run trains at the same time with having a cornfield meet. My apologies if the photos are to large.
