Contest: Win a Lionel Holiday Train Car from Vapor Records!

My pal Rob emailed me last week with the question, "What would the Holidays be without giving away a Lionel Train Car?"

Lionel Trains

He had no idea that he had just emailed the semi-authority on Lionel Model Trains.  While that is a slight exaggeration, Lionel Trains did play a part in my early youth.

Dad got me into model trains when I was growing up, and showed me his rather used and abused (mostly from years of moving from one location to another) Lionel train set.  Thanks to those previously mentioned moves from state to state, we never quite got around to building that model train layout that we'd talked about, but I definitely was a model train nut in those early years.  Anybody who shares that love, will understand the excitement of going to the store, and being able to pick out a train car to add to your lineup, or perhaps another accessory.  Those were good times.

Thanks to Rob and the fine folks at Vapor Records, we've got a very cool contest to brighten your holiday season!

With the arrival of the holidays, a familiar scene will take place around many Christmas trees this season, as families set up their beloved model train set. This time-honored holiday tradition will also take place at the home of guitarist Neil Young who is a long-time fan of model railroading. In fact, Mr. Young was once a part-owner of the Lionel Train Company and, in turn, his label Vapor Records would have a commemorative ‘Lionel Holiday Train Car’ created to share with friends and family.

    If you are in the corner and have no cash to move out from that point, you will have to take the credit loans. Because that will help you definitely. I take college loan every time I need and feel myself OK because of that.
