What ever happened to the old train sets !!??Johndee Yesterday 11:44 AM
@ Jimmy — ‘time’, time is what happened… in the future, people will be going ‘what happened to the old iPhones — what was wrong with them? Just as people would have once said ‘what was wrong with sending kids to the workhouse when they turned 10 years old?,’ when they saw kids playing with new fangled ‘good old train sets’. It’s funny how people are only ever nostalgic for, and think the best decades ever, were ‘when they were lads’ — you never hear people going ‘by gum it wasn’t like that back in the days of pre-agrarian society when we had to hunt our own food and die from infection before we hit 25 years old – whatever happened to those days eh??’ Train sets were just as much a product of progress as iphones and computers are these days. Er, so there.
