His love of toy trains began at the age of 4 when he was given his first Lionel Steam Freight Set, which he still runs today.

Standard Gauge Trains - Explore the Magic

Authored by Herbert A Shauger Jr

Today it has become both easy and economical for someone to publish a book in either hard or electronic copy. With that in mind, the author became inspired to share his passion for antique Standard Gauge model trains with the interested public. These trains are really cool items for anyone who likes "stuff" to enjoy reading about. The book briefly explains the history and practical operation of Standard Gauge trains and then goes on to provide annotated photographs of more than 30 cataloged sets produced by the more noted American manufacturers. It turns out that the writing of such a book has proven to be great way for anyone with a collection to document what they have (or used to have) for posterity.
