Very exciting finds at the Peekskill Attic Treasures flea market on Sunday--TWO LIONEL TRAIN CATALOGs--one from 1975, the other from 1976; click on the photo. Lots of "putzing inspiration" for our crafters. Hope to have the catalogs scanned for the next FOR TRAIN LOVERS ONLY here at Everything Croton.
Updated: see more of the catalog here http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2013/04/for-train-lovers-only-2013-10.html
