I am a Lionel junky. I’ve been playing with trains since I was in dippers. The five cars I bought today are worth $300 for the set. With out the engine. And they all work. Not bad for $5.00 dollars a pice. All the light work. I love toy trains. I’m still a kid a big tall kid. Best way to be. #lioneltrains#toytrains @welldunn78
My BiG 5-0 philanthropic ask for you all. Train Table Needs a Good Home.
I need to find the right home to donate this incredible Train Layout to.
As many of you know I am a big #LionelTrains Hobbyist, so this is right in my wheelhouse. The perfect candidate to receive it is a Hospital that caters to kids or a non profit that has room to proudly display it, let kids and adults alike enjoy it, and most importantly not sell it off for the money.
If you are from LA or the entertainment world you may have been fortunate to see this amazing masterpiece, if so, you know it’s creator passed away and the train has gone silent.
And I have taken on the task to help his Widow find a way for the train to live on and put smiles on more kids and adults faces.
I have already secured a team to dismantle and reassemble it, and designated a charitable foundation to receive tax deductible donations to transfer to the organization that ultimately ends up with this 25’x 25’ piece of history.
We are talking with a few hospitals, but haven’t gotten a commitment because of the way charitable gifts and donations usually work , and so I need your help to get me a yes. Any Hospitals or organizations that work with kids and have the room and want to lighten people’s day, I would welcome an introduction.
Preferably a location here in Southern California, so that myself and Robbie can stay involved with a team of volunteers over the different times of year. I am confident that once we share the story of its creator the right Home for it can actually turn it into a nice story and fundraising tool.
If you have any contacts, thoughts or want to help us finance the annual maintenance endowment, please DM me.
I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did making it. #LionelTrains#ToyTrains#CHOC#ArtOfElysium#CardsYouAreDealt
Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, designed this Train Layout in 2005!!! Still shines on and YOU can experience close up & personal in the NY Transit Museum. Here’s a cut and paste all about it! 🚂🚂🚂🚂🎄🎄🎄🎄❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️☃️☃️☃️The 17th Annual Holiday Train Show captures the magic of New York City during this festive winter season! Bring the family to our Grand Central Terminal Gallery Annex and experience model trains including Metro-North Railroad, New York Central, and a fleet of vintage subway cars as they make their way from Lower Manhattan through Grand Central and on to the North Pole! The installation features new, vibrant artwork by Ebony Bolt, commissioned by the New York Transit Museum. #modelrailway#traintable#toytrains#twtrainworx#modelrailroad#holidayevent#holidaytrain#twtrainworxlayout#traingineer#rogerfarkash
Helping the kids keep trains organized in a parking lot with numbered tacks for the little magnets. Also numbered the tracks to make it easier for students to assemble on their own 🤓 #iteachsped#toytrains
My mom, of whom I’m so proud, sporting purple duds and purple hair in honor of World Pancreatic Cancer awareness day. Since my dad’s passing, she has made it her mission to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer awareness. She does this many ways, not the least of which is @therighttracktrain Museum in Lake Lure, NC. %100 of the proceeds go to pancreatic cancer research funding.
#getcreativewith buildings this week- we used some #magformers in our new DIY rainbow 🌈 #trainset 🚂 to make some sweet little houses for the trains! This is a perfect little gift for a toddler and it looks amazing! Find out how to make your own through the link in my bio! 😊 #🚂 #🌈 #toddlerfun
I finally managed to finish the post about my little #diy#rainbow#trainset ! The best part- I mounted it on my 2-in-1 light table and sensory bin- so it’s now a 3-in-1 activity center that would be perfect for apartments or small homes! Do you know a toddler that would love one of these? Click the link in my bio to find out how to make one of your own! #diytoys#playislearning#thosecolorsthough
