Once in a great while you are in the right place at the right time... Found this auction at the last minute. Some very rare pieces, one Giant that I've never seen! The Yellow/Gold house with the Blue Roof is a GIANT that I have never seen before! Way Cool... And for the Toy Train lovers I also added these pieces to my collection for the same auction.

Notice to two "Super Rare Lakkies"... Very rare windows made from intertwined straw pieces.

Hello Howard. Yes the train runs and as you can see it's in great condition as well. The two Lionel houses and the Signal Tower are in pristine condition also. There is hardly and flaws in the house to boot. Cool beans...

Each building is so special. I am going to be studying each house and you know I will find at least one I will want to reproduce.
