Truck’s Toy Trains

Postwar Lionel Trains YouTube Channel

When Kalmbach Media asked me to do a video series featuring my Lionel toy train collection I was both honored and full of apprehension.  Being on camera is not something I’ve aspired to do so I was plenty nervous about doing this.  After meeting the show’s producer, David Popp my uneasiness was laid to rest.  David’s enthusiasm that the show would be fun and help build interest in our great hobby sold me to do this.  Truth be told, I had a blast sharing my knowledge and my collection demonstrating to viewers why I love these trains.  I’ve gotten so many nice complements about the show and the addition of my side kick Taylor that this effort was truly rewarding.  Thank you to Kalmbach & CTT’s Roger Carp for making this possible. I hope you enjoy the show!  - John “Truck” Truckenbrod
