Train Set

This is our find from a yard sale that we went to last week. The picture really doesn't do it justice...kind of looks like a pile of junk. But what you're looking at is several hundred dollars worth of train set that we secured for just five dollars. Those stacks of boxes are boxed trains. The pile of stuff between Grace and I are buildings in need of some minor repairs. Behind me, are more than two dozen in tact buildings and there are more behind Grace. Against the wall is a large stack of railway. The yellow box is full of replacement windows and such for the buildings. We have yet to set it all up and see if it works, but it looks like a fun project for a rainy day...or two :P There's even grass and trees and stuff...someone was crazy into trains. I guess David and I will have to learn a thing or two before setting it up since we don't know the first thing about hobby trains...except that they cost a lot more than we care to spend...unless you hit up a yard sale. Needless to say, if David has a hard time finding a job...this will be the first thing we sell on ebay to earn some extra cash--lol.
