As promised here is the picture of the Little Tikes train set that Sandra and I inherited. It is absolutely amazing the condition this train is in considering it had been stored in an attic for 25 to 20 years(?). I have removed the ride on section and I am currently rebuilding the transmission and drive. There is nothing wrong with it, but after sitting for so long I thought since it was easy to get in to (They really did make this toy to be repaired) I would clean out the old grease and re-pack the gear drive with some fresh white grease.
We are thinking this train will look great in the display. We have to purchase a 6V battery and do some testing on how long it will run. I'm hoping that without a rider, it will last for awhile. If not, then I have some other ideas to maybe trigger the train using LOR when visitors come to see the display.
