NICE!!!
how do you determine tinplate? by looking?
They are made out of tin. :p
Prewar stuff mainly. All metal trains.

But there is Modern tinplate being made now, a few of our members have them.
I think Bob the poet has some, I am surprised none of them chimed in yet.

The first time I perused your pic.'s, I missed the added ties on the tubular. It just registered as one of modern upscale track systems.

The whole layout is very nice (I came back to look again).

That's a good question, I cannot give you a proper answer, I just know I like it. 80 plus years old and the stuff looks like new.
Are you looking for additions to your collection of Tinplate? I have a 1936 1070E Set that Teledoc rated EXC++ back when I shared pics in 2016. Doc loved it because it has the first 1688 made with thin casting and windows from the cab looking down the running boards. Let me know if you are interested and I will send pics.
