Welcome fellow hobbyists! This site is dedicated to our mission of introducing persons of all ages to the wonders of old fashioned toys and model trains.
From venerable toy train manufacturers such as Lionel, American Flyer and Marx...toys made by Tonka, Buddy L and A.C. Gilbert (Erector Sets)...all the way to more recent favorites of Lego; these timeless toys are a lot of fun for children and appeals to the "kid" in grown-ups alike!
We are a non-profit corporation headquartered in the Greater Toledo (Ohio) Area with two objectives: educational and charitable works.
Our EDUCATIONAL division promotes the hobby of model railroading and toy trains to families with museum quality exhibits at public venues for everyone to enjoy. We sponsor the annual "Greater Toledo Train & Toy Show" always held the 2nd Sunday of March (see "Events" link).
We also provide expert advice and unique exhibits for everyone's enjoyment at our "Train Barn" (see the "About Us" link).
Appointments with expert Randy can always be scheduled.
The CHARITABLE division procures, processes and provides toys and assorted necessities to area needy children. To date, we have provided thousands of items to children free of charge.
