Tin-Can Railroad (Jun, 1950)

Tin-Can Railroad

When a Georgia railroad man retired, he had to do something “to keep from going crazy” and naturally he turned to trains for his hobby. Using ordinary tin cans as raw material, W. E. Chester, 86-year-old Atlantan, has built himself a realistic collection of locomotives in his back yard. Occasionally, to add variety, he produces weather-vanes and whirligigs, using the always-available tin cans, but most of his time is spent fashioning locomotives of various sizes and types.

    All I can say about the trains are, Wow.

    The radioactive mosquitoes, however, have to be the single worst idea I’ve heard in many a while!
