:cry_happy:  It is just so beautiful.

One day, while browsing on Wikipedia, I found this old LEGO 12v commercial. You can watch the commercial by clicking on this link.



Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

Since I wasn't alive in the 80's, I've never heard of 12 volt trains until I read about them on Wikipedia. The earliest trains I've seen on LEGO.com were 9 volts.
