I love trains. So, when I found out a buddy of mine was given his father's entire collection of model trains I went bonkers. I immediately demanded he set it up around his house. Then, gleefully took over the controls like I was Casey Jones. This past summer he set up that train set all over his backyard, and we spent the afternoon riding the rails; while directing his wife to grab us some beers.
That was a good time... And yeah, I feel no shame for my childlike behavior. It was a blast, after all... And dammit! When you're middle aged it's okay to live like a child from time to time.
So, when I got word of the item I'm featuring in this post I knew I had to share it. Lionel, the leading maker of toy and model trains, will be producing made-to-order MLB Spring Training boxcars, and eight different teams are available:
