My cousins were recently looking to get rid of their HO scale collection that they had growing up. I decided to acquire everything that they had which included a few locos, lots of rollingstock, tools, parts, track, a couple power packs, and misc. items. We grew up together running HO scale and it was fun going through boxes of old stuff. My son is 7 and has his own HO scale model railroad, so now he has a much larger collection. One of the items that I am going to use for my own is a paint jar caddy that one of my cousin's built when he was probably 12. It was made from plywood and a hole saw. I can't imagine how many hours he must have spent drilling the holes, assembling, and sanding. Oh well, I'll try to make good use of it for my paint jars.
