Good one, Vince, my chuckle & fond memory of the day! And just how many TO members out there knew it was "A. C. Gilbert" who gave us baby-boomers the Erector Set to have 100s of hours of fun with??? (I see maybe 27 hands up in the air... ;^)

Lance- Erector Set class of Christmas '65 (or was it '66?)

Not to mention American Flyer trains!  But the AF switcher was a Baldwin VO; I don't think they ever did an Alco switcher.  :-)
