Book Description


"Back in the Day—Growing Up in the Fifties: I Still Haven’t Met a Train I Didn’t Like" takes its readers back to a young boy’s perspective during the 1950s, but also shares with them the magical world of collecting toy trains, uniting the passions of bygone youth and collectors today. Lou Palumbo is a treasure in the world of toy train collecting, and shares with his readers not only his passions of the past, but his continued commitment to his own collecting, and helping others with theirs as well.
