Today it has become both easy and economical for someone to publish a book in either hard or electronic copy. With that in mind, the author became inspired to share his passion for Antique O Gauge Model Trains with the interested public. These trains are great items for anyone who likes “stuff” to enjoy reading about them. The book briefly details the history of O Gauge Trains and then goes on to provide annotated pictures of more than 30 Cataloged Sets produced by noted American and foreign manufacturers, such as Lionel, American Flyer, Ives, Marklin, Bing, Marx and Joy Line. It turns out that the writing of such a book has proven to be a great way for anyone with a collection to document what they have (or used to have) for posterity and sharing through the ages.
