I don’t know why I like hand cars so much…perhaps it’s all the animation…I can tell you that children’s faces light up when they see it…

This is one of “several” I have in my collection…how many do I have?…probably “more than I deserve”…that’s all I’m going to say…

All are Christmas theme colors and figures…

Right now I’m trying to get two more…the yellow and red coca cola version with white polar bears…and the Lionel polar express” one with elves…wish me luck…

Merry Christmas to you all…

Howard…

Yes, polar bears can do this. You just don't want to be on the station platform when they get hungry. :-)

I think I'm becoming a possible fan too!

The Coca-cola bears did it!
