YourToyTrains- Model Trains- Why do children love trains so much? We have been in the Jet Age for 60 years or so. Cool race cars look to be much more exciting. But are they? It is amazing to me this 19th Century technology, the train, still fascinates young people. Look at the eyes of my Grand Nephew Douglas as he watches a railroad video (Like the ones we show on YourToyTrains on Facebook). Excited? You had best believe it!
