‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey’ HO-Scale Train Set — If You Are An Avid Collector.

Cute and nostalgic in that ‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey‘, at least for now, are gone.

I saw this in an e-mail this morning.

Yes, I was mildly curious in that I am a big fan of ‘The Greatest Show On Earth‘ and like trains and train sets.

But, to be fair this was not compelling even putting aside that it was just in HO scale. My days of HO are long gone. My current layout is N while still have a lot of Z!

They could have done better. No animal wagons and just two passenger cars and the livery isn’t that great. Expensive too — though that could be because it is HO.

Just wanted to share it with you.

The folks who did the display.

Found this on the Web. Click image to access. There are more. Google “Disneyland Schuco Monorail”.

I had never seen these Disney Monorail models or heard of Schuco. Kind of before my time. Appears that they stopped making these rather cute and compelling models in the 1960s. I was still in Ceylon and train sets were were not easy to come by.

This display at Concord, by two locals (see their card above), was cool. Had me captivated. They had done a real nice job and the track was extensive.

I just wanted to share with you. Not sure how many of you were aware of these models. Enjoy.

If you want to see it in action try contacting those folks above.

Yes, they have some for sale on eBay!
