Needing your knowledge
« on: October 02, 2017, 11:11:21 pm »
Hello all!
My name is James and I live in Monterey CA. I recently got some trains that are the ones my Dad played with when he was a child. Never knew he had these stashed away and his passing has had these fall into my hands. I'm looking to get these running under the family Christmas tree.
Is there a known place or person that is the Go To to see within my area?
I'm hoping to have the black locomotive #671 running with a few of the cars behind it. I have no tracks and don't even know the exact gauge of these pieces.
Is there a way to set-up the power so the train is on a hourly timer for a few minutes?
I don't know if these still work.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

What you have is '0' gauge trains and you need '0' gauge track to run them on, especially the green GG-1.
