Attic Treasures      [ Pricing & Details ]

My wife Carole and I really love antiques and we go antiquing whenever we get a chance, we have friends who own an antique store and while their for a show we saw this electric toy train, it was in a box kind of shoved back under a table, and the minute I saw it, a flood of memories came back. When I was a boy I had an electric toy train, it was setup on a piece of ply wood and I kept it under the bed, I would just pull it out whenever I wanted to play with it. I remembered how much my brother and I really loved playing with that train, I knew the minute that I saw it that I had to put these memories down on canvas. I was really surprised when I got home and set it up that it actually worked. My grandson Trevor and I had a great time playing with it. Of course it’s his train.


The attic was kind of a scary place when we were kids, It was a place of mystery and the unknown, My brother Clayne and I used to play up there when it rained. These boys have ventured up there and discovered this old American Flyer, it’s kind of a hidden treasure of old forgotten memories.
