Just took another look at the collection....
I noticed some original Metroliner MU's with the PRR Keystone logo Cool


SHARP eyes, my friend! Wink

The O gauge Metroliners were from WILLIAMS, and the smaller ones are toy battery operated two-car sets, which were sold in the late 60's.

Each set came with a circle of "High Speed Track", and I have the original boxes for two of the sets.

One box STILL has the original price tag affixed to the lid....$1.99!! Shocked

These are pretty rare pieces these days; I am certainly fortunate to have them in my archives.... Very Happy

"Metro Blue?.....
Okay on the blue!"

If you rode them in the early days...that phrase should bring back memories... Wink

George:

Yes......I guess it COULD be said that TRAINS are also a HUGE part of my collection........... Rolling Eyes

What you see there represents well over 30 years of "serious collecting"....... Wink

(GREAT PICS, my friend!!) Very Happy

traildriver:

Thank you! Very Happy

I do, in fact, have a pretty extensive collection of vintage toy harbor vessels (ferries, tugs, excursion steamers) as well as a good number of old toy ocean liners (like the ferries and tugs, these are represented in both tin and plastic)

I have nearly 50 ferries in my collection, and nearly 20 tugs (not including some plastic toy car floats!)

I also have several vintage toy fire boats, as well as a number of vintage tin/plastic PT boats (one of JFK's PT-109), and several aircraft carriers, battleships, etc. (1950's/60's)

Commercial aviation-wise, I do have a HUGE tin friction TWA "SUPER G" Constellation, and a COMET Jetliner, as well as assorted 1960's small-sized jets.

Hopefully, the next time my buddy George comes down, I can get him to snap a few pics of these as well! Very Happy

Again, I appreciate the kind compliments on my collection...... Wink

"NYO"

BTW:

You would NOT believe how many more old buses I have, than what you have already seen! Shocked
