I bought this kit so long ago …

I might have been in my teens …

$13 is probably today’s sales tax if you could still buy this kit. I don’t recall where “Trackside” is or was.
This might be so old I bought it before I left my childhood home.

[Update: Yes, it’s still available. Price of $79.39]

I recall being afraid to tackle this kit … then no time – so there it sat for a few decades.
 

 That was then, this is now.

 I intended to build just the trestle and set it aside.

Even as I was building it – yep, I’ll just set it up over there.

Then I thought – Just a trestle sitting on a shelf?

Why not give it “an environment”?

Places in the Rockies and Sierra are like this.

 Maybe an 1880s photo taken in the Ruby Mountains of Nevada …
