Will, Your best bet might be eBay, sorry. I checked the Craigslist around Provo, and the closest reasonable buy was Durango! Ouch.

Here's a new one that is not THAT impressive but would get you started, and you could add different locomotives and cars later (no commercial relationship, in case you wondered).

Best of luck,

Thanks much Paul and Howard! Yeah, Durango is a jump! lol... I don't really need anything fancy. I want something bigger than the HO, which I think is too small of a set up for my Christmas village. I'll give that link a try and report back! ;)

Just "won" an auction for a used Lionel O gauge Polar Express with some of the little people and track missing. I haven't had ANY experience with this train - just the American Flyer S Scale version, and thought if I could get one without paying an arm an or a leg for it, that would be a good investment. Plus I have some ideas for rescaling some of my building fronts that might go well with it. We'll see.

When I put a train under the tree with a village, it's an old late 40's American Flyer my Dad bought for my sister and me. Still runs!

I had AF trains in the 1950s and 1960s. Two rails good, three rails bad. :-)
