    Two great finds!
    I have found some Lionel goodies at our local annual Country Living Fair. I found a pair of O gauge switches and a cross intersection in their original LIonel boxes.
    I’m with the local fire dept, and drive our antique Mack pumper for display. I’m about the only one who can drive it. Makes the day worth while when you find a Studebaker or Packard related item. An of course picking up a Lionel or Marx train item isn't too shabby either.

      What year Mack? The village where I grew up had a 1953 Mack fire engine. When I was a youth/teenager, I was the department mascot and rode in uniform on top of that Mack in parades. Of course the engine was brand new then. Are you referring to "real antique", like a chain drive Mack?

      EDIT: That department also had/has a hand pumper that got pulled in parades.

      EDIT II: I am thinking that the Mack must have been earlier than a 1953 considering my age at the time.

        Hi Gary, Our (old) Mack is a 1938 E Model pumper. The younger guys can’t drive manual shift, and of course have no idea what it means to “double clutch” each gear.

              A casual inspection of the two jackets shows that there were two different horses used in the photos. In fact Ed did have a stand-in for personal appearances and publicity since his shooting schedule did not allow time for him to appear in all the many functions required for promotions etc. When one of these stand-ins passed away after the series ended it was reported to be the real Mr. Ed when in reality it was one of his body doubles.
