                    One Christmas, I set up and showed my young grandson my Lionel train set from when I was a boy. He ran the train around the track once, and asked, “Is this all it does, Grandpa?” Annoyed, I put it all back in the box and there it stayed. Video games make reality unnecessary.

                      Very cool indeed. Video games are great, but there is nothing here and now or tactile about them...yet. If anyone knows where to find an AMT 1/24-25 slot car setup with steering, I would like to find one. I still have the transformer from my set (Xmas, 1962) but would love to find one.
