Bob Gibson's Model Train Collection
For many years, Bob Gibson was a electric train enthusiast and collector. Over the past several decades, he has assembled a world-class collection of electric HO and O gauge trains and accessories. The collection is so vast that it took up an entire room of over 1,000 square feet in his home. The pictures in this catalog were taken when this set was assembled in Mr. Gibson's home. Presently, the collection is disassembled and ready for the new owner to take over as the conductor. Most of the trains and accessories are in EX or better condition and were taken care of very well.
