Anyone also into what I collect sometimes?

Fleischmann is probably one of the best brands I've come across when it comes to model trains.

It's just too bad they don't have an english site. Sad

All of my trains are lionel. I have a cheesey system diesel electric engine with a slew of freight cars, and some BIG mckinley explorers (6 axle pullman twin level glass top luxury cars) in HO. I also have a nondescript O scale too.

I actually spent 3 days in one of these cars. Hence why I have them.

You should really find yourself a Fleischmann kit. The quality is not even describable.

My father collect locomotives since decades... he only runs a very short test track to test the fuction of the models

He has somewere between 700-800 locomotives (only very vew wagons) mostly in HO some smaller and some bigger models. Part of the collection are self build highly expansive made of brazz locomotives. He collect from all nations all ages... german, frensh, swiss, british, US etc... from steam over propeller powered to electric powered...from Märlin, Fleischmann, Roco etc. etc.

In my eyes the best mass production locomotive model producer in HO is Roco

Interesting. I have several "N" guage trains laying around somewhere. I havent touched them since I was 11 or 12 years old. I am not even sure where the hell they are at anymore.

If I ever find one I want a "Carlisle & Finch" train set. My neighbor had 2 of them on a track overhead when I was a kid. He was very old and I believe he had them since he was a kid.

The cool thing about them to me was the The Carlisle & Finch Company was right next door to him... 2 doors down from my house. Of course by then they made large Spot Lights and other crap they could make a living at, but not trains.
