Well, I just picked up a little pop-up from Craigslist yesterday. It's a 1983 Lionel. It's in pretty rough shape, but for $250, I figured I'd give it a try! The canvas is really the only thing I'm worried about. It's pretty old and torn in a bunch of places. I looked into getting a whole new canvas, but it would be $925, which is WAAAAY out of my price range. What's the next best thing?!
