The Most Cherished Gift I've Ever Received Was My Childhood Model Train Set

One of my all time favorite gifts came in the early 1960's when, as a little boy, I received my first model train set. It was a Christmas gift from my Grandfather who was a train conductor and a model train builder. 
With the gift came a card that simply read "now you have trains of your own." I cherished those trains, taking care of them and setting them around the Christmas tree every year. As time went on I would add new pieces to my train set. It now resides in my garage, taking up the entire room. My grandson and I play with it every time he visits.
