Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 8:27pm.

Rives the paragraph below to create shorter, more direct sentences.

Years ago, when most of today's model railroaders were still growing up, the toy world offed a number of fantastic electric train sets that included engines with real steam and whistles that blew, train stations with people waiting for the trains, and even trees and houses for landscaping. The train sets were often purchased as Christmas gifts for children and were brought out of the closet and set up only during the holiday season each year. Although these train sets were generally sold and used as toys for children who had spent the year looking longingly through shop windows,adults seemed to enjoy them as much or more. The children would have to wait for hours while their fathers and mothers played engineer. These sets fascinated the would-be modeler, hinting at how much more could accomplished with some imagination and a little more money.
