when they are all gone. What do you want to do, play ping pong? I understand the shaking and eyesight. Can't help with that. I know you would miss your trains if they are gone. Send flyernut 2 or 3 at a time and let him take his time. He is a busy guy.
But he would do it for you. Quit working on them. Its causing frustration. Your mechanic days are over. But you can still be an engineer. That's the fun part.
Well said!

I am looking for someone local to assist me in disposing of my American Flyer Stuff. I want someone to come physically to my place and sort, pack and dispose my small collection. I am willing to either pay for the service or trade some for the service.
It seems like it is time to give it up. I have been trying to rebuild/rewire a 312 for the past three weeks but all I do is add two more problems to the one that I was trying to fix. Vision, shaking hands and loss of mental dexterity brings me to this point.
Glad you reconsidered Fred. I too would have missed your posts. Haven't been on the forum for a while, once the weather breaks I tend to spend most of my time doing stuff in my yard and gardens. Of course, there is the other projects that my better half has for me to do indoors. Trains get pushed to the back burner. Again, glad you had a change of heart. Looks like I've got some catching up on reading.

Thanks Cramden! I really don't want to dispose them. I really enjoy just having them despite not being able to do what I want to them.

We all get old Fred, nature of the beast. I certainly wish I could do all the stuff I used to be able to do, I just live within my limitations. I'm glad to see you reconsidering, as others have said, enjoy the working trains.

Thanks John! It is sure good to have all the fine friends, although we have never met, here on this forum!

I met a ton of people in the forums, and later I get to meet many of them in person, it's a real treat. I'm lucky to be pretty much in the catbird seat for railroading here in PA. Lots of local train shows and train people, and York is less than two hours away!

FWIW, I fix trains, and I still have some sitting on the shelf that need work. I'll get to them someday.
