Back in the Day: Growing Up in the Fifties: I Still Haven't Met a Train I Didn't Like

Back in the Day: Growing Up in the Fifties: I Still Haven't Met a Train I Didn't Like Lowest new price: $12.99
List price: $12.99
Author: Lou Palumbo

BACK IN THE DAY…a young boy’s interests may have focused on the enjoyment of toy trains. But those interests would have surely changed in the teenage years to cars and girls. It’s not until their later years that these boys, now grown men, come back to collecting toy trains as a link to their childhood. "The 1950s brought the introduction of sports cars to American culture, and to the excitement of teenage boys everywhere. General Motors produced the Corvette in 1953, and Ford quickly followed with the Thunderbird in 1955. "I was one of those teenage boys that had grown up enjoying toy trains, but had shifted that joy to cars (and girls!). The ’55 Thunderbird holds a special memory for me. My sister, Anarose, had purchased a red 1955 T-Bird in like-new condition a few years after they came out. I was the luckiest teenage boy around because she let me drive her T-Bird to my high school senior activities for one week in June of 1962. I do not have to explain how great it was to drive that beautiful red car." "Back in the Day—Growing Up in the Fifties: I Still Haven’t Met a Train I Didn’t Like" takes its readers back to a young boy’s perspective during the 1950s, but also shares with them the magical world of collecting toy trains, uniting the passions of bygone youth and collectors today. Lou Palumbo is a treasure in the world of toy train collecting, and shares with his readers not only his passions of the past, but his continued commitment to his own collecting, and helping others with theirs as well.
