Who made the floodlight tower? It looks very sturdy.

Nice looking cars Tom, I especially like the gondola, that's something I haven't seen on many Flyer layouts.

That's a neat light tower, looks like it might be a Marx.

For my picture today, sometime back I think Kenny(AFGP9) was talking about Christmas lights, can't find the exact post, but he mentioned the light shades that spin similar to the airport beacon top that Flyer and others have made. The heat of the bulb is supposed to make the beacon spin. I mentioned that I collect vintage Christmas ornaments and said I had a box of them. Well, The tree is getting decorated and took a couple of pics. of the ones I have. I don't use the C-7 lights anymore since the leds are much cooler and safer so these won't go on the tree this year, not enough heat to make them work. Here they are. They came 10 in a box. There are little metal cones that sit atop of the bulbs to balance the shades on, but apparently fell out of the box and are somewhere in one of the containers. I will proceed with a hunt at some point. They are difficult to get working, it's not easy to keep the bulb straight up so the shade will balance.

I do not have any of those shades, they are very nicely made.
I also have a collection of old Christmas decorations, some of which I use, some are NIB. The tree has C7 bulbs, some have the plastic stars. The colored outside C9 lights are all original inside frosted swirl glass bulbs. The red cellophane wreaths all have halo's on the bulbs. Maybe I better stop here.

Still use original C-9 lights outside, they are Christmas to me. I have about 6-7 bubble light strings also but they're from the sixties. Almost all of the decorations are Merry-Brite and Shiny-Brite along with some other unknowns. I always bought boxes of balls when I found them at antique stores.

Nice light tower.

Tom, those convention cars are nice. Sure wish I had seen something on S Fest
in St Louis. I missed it.

MoPac, I was unable to make the St Louis meet this year. To get those cars I ordered them when I preregistered for the meet. I do not recall what the St Louis car was.

Nice to see you have all the cars for the set. Gilbert must have sold a "gazillion" of that set over the years.
