Weekend 168.1

(1) Model Train Collector’s One Track Mind

(2) Now Arriving: A Giant Toy-Train Offering

The Greenes want the collection to go to a single buyer who will leave it intact. They can also reject a bid in favor of someone who pledges to build a museum for the collection, which they say is their preference. Ms. Greene adds, “We would not want a museum with our names on it. That’s not the kind of people we are.”

Limestone Commentary: I really hope this collection ends up in a museum. For many, it may be the only chance they have to experience those “train stations, bridges and buildings destroyed during World Wars I and II” dimensionally.
