Gordon enjoys the whole train experience.  He collects almost all types of rolling stock MTH, Lionel, and Williams.  "I don't store them in boxes, I run everything I buy!"  What a fantastic story of a train collector.  Gordon started collecting Lionel trains in 1975.  He built his first layout in his first new house in Bay Shore, Long Island, New York.  It was 11 x 12 feet.  The second layout came with a new house and children in Bay Shore.  It was 4 x 8 feet.   Now he has the new house and layout in Florida at 10 x 12 feet, similar to his first layout.  We enjoy having Gordon come in to look for new items for the layout and to repair and keep the current ones running smoothly.  From NY to FL running the rails.
