"Things Found at Train Meets not held in Pennsylvania!"
By Mike Stella
I collect Electric Trains, not those powered by a transformer,
power pack, or battery, but those models that carry a pantograph
on their roofs.
Like a GG1 or a Bi-Polar or a large group of early prewar
electric types. At the recent Cal-Stewart Meet held every November
in Southern California (and always open to all TCA members
to attend) I had the good fortune to add FOUR prewar electrics
to my collection.
They are the #3116, #3020, #3253, and #3109 made by Lionel,
Ives, and American Flyer. I was thrilled to be able to purchase
each of these "Electric" locomotives complete with
matching passenger cars. I was more thrilled that the vast
majority of TCA members never make the trek out west in November
to attend our meet. MORE for ME. I thank you.
