The novice 1972
Il trenino di Paps
(Translation to be reviewed)
It was a Christmas of the early sixties, I do not remember exactly which, and despite the economic boom underway, in Family we di not sail in the gold.
My parents, however, made sacrifices and let me find under the Christmas’ tree an electric train which I still keep and I would say that more or less has been with me for about 50 years.
Probably it had his original package but definitely was thrown away immediately and after the first use it was always guarded in this wicker basket for sewing.
My train consists of a Diesel locomotive D 442 with vertical motor
with the two Corbellini coaches
and the dark green wagoon
Some time later, in addition to the passenger train came the freight train.
The steam locomotive with tender Lima Express
with the closed freight cars
the freight car for animal transportation
the freigh low sides cars
the tank Agip and two special freight cars
and the two deadtracks
Now, become a Conti trains collector of great value, I still reserved a place of honor, in the showcase, at the modest little train Lima with whom I had fun in thoughtlessness.
Today, on the occasion of my birthday, another green wagon with light blue glasses joins the small Collection.
It is a kind thought by Paolo, dear friend in La Spezia and a true gentleman of yesteryear
