Lord that man loved trains.

I would still prefer the steam powered model, thank you.

This kind of reminds me of above-ground pools. Looks like it would be really cool to have... until the moment you actually use it.

Ahh yes train sets. Just like boobs. Yeah sure they are SUPPOSED to be there for the little ones, but really dads have WAY more fun with them.

First the train, then maybe I'll even get my name in the phone book!

All aboard the Romero Train. Let me guess, the ones that run on coal or diesel that have been around for years don't count to Gizmodo, because they're not electrical.

I think it had something to do with the 20 something writer never knowing these were real until he saw this crappy Chinese toy in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue.

I wonder if it comes with a distressed damsel, or do you have to provide your own?

/distressed damsel, that is a damsel that has been washed with stones.

$23,000 sounds a touch expensive for what amounts to a moderately beefed up powerwheels + some track.

Okay, but how can I buy a bed that's actually a fruit cart, like the one on  Punky Brewster?

And if I buy it, will Soleil Moon Frye get in the fruit cart with me?

I recently tried to buy a licensed Lionel coffee mug, and was shocked, SHOCKED to find that such a thing does not exist.

Normally in that fight, 500 HP means your level is too high.

If your train starts asking you riddles you may be in trouble.

Or you spot a bunch of old geezers in Winnebagos and one big freaking land yacht driven by a one toothed top hat wearing woman  with a taste for torturing special kids.
